August in the Library

So August was a mixed month – usually hugely busy at work, this year was pretty calm, allowing me more time than expected to read and review quite a few books. That allowed me to get into a good rhythm of posting here (also helped along by a change to the length of reviews) which petered out at the end of the month as the expected rush at work began! Halfway through the month I had a week’s holiday with the family down in the South of France, and we had both my parents and my in-laws staying for a few weeks to watch the Munchkin. Everything is slowly getting back to normal now, though work is still quite busy.

On the blog… Like I said, there was a period of almost twenty days when I managed to have a new post every day, which was nice, and I was able to get quite a few reviews posted. In August I reviewed sixteen books, most of which I had read the month before. I’m probably going to skip some of the books I read this month to get back to reviewing more recent titles, keeping some of the backlog for when I need an extra review here or there. What exactly did I review in August?
