July Books Log

I only read one book for the month of July, "The Dogs of Babel" by Carolyn Parkhurst, 261 pages. I have to say, it's one of the best books that I have read all year. This brings my year count up to 46, with a total of 11,801 pages to date. I'm way behind on my goal for the year. This year I've been incredibly busier than I thought I would be. Many things have happened and it seems I'm behind on everything.

I'm currently reading "Hyperion" by Dan Simmons, "The Immortal" by Christopher Pike, and "Strangers" by Dean Koontz. All of these are rereads for me. I'm trying to get as many books finished from my bookshelf as possible as we will be taking a trip up north to Bookmans soon.

I also got about half way through "Act like a woman, Think like a man" by Steve Harvey. My mother insisted I read it, but I personally think that most men don't act as depicted in the book. I lost interested and she needed the book back.

In other book news, "The Time Traveler's Wife" has finally been made into a movie. It's one of my favorite books and I'm interested to see how it turns out. I'm not 100% in love with the actors that were chosen for the roles, but we shall see how they do.
