My Bookish Life in July 2018

I know I read a lot, and yet when I see the list of books I have finished by month end, I always feel the need to go back and check to see if it is right. I checked and it is. Here are the books I finished reading in July.
    1. Green Almonds: Letters from Palestine
    2. Hello, Nebulon! (Galaxy Zack #1) read aloud with my son
    3. Sharp Objects for July book club
    4. No One Tells You This: A Memoir
    5. Nevertheless She Persisted: True Stories of Women Leaders in Tech
    6. The Art of Inheriting Secrets
    7. The Reinvention of Mimi Finnegan
    8. Zen Pencils: Cartoon Quotes from Inspirational Folks
    9. SELF-ish: A Transgender Awakening -- My review is coming later this week!
Also surprising, yet not, is the list of books that joined my TBR pile from a number of sources. (I like saying it this way. It sounds like they wandered over on their own accord.)

In July, I purchased Living Your Yoga: Finding the Spiritual in Everyday Life from Barnes & Noble and a used copy of The Seeker's Guide (previously published as The New American Spirituality) from Biblio.com.

I won an audiobook copy of Rabbit: The Autobiography of Ms. Pat by Patricia Williams and with Jeannine Amber through a Book Riot-hosted contest sponsored by Libro.fm.

From the library, I picked up I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer for my local book club meeting in August. Sadly, I didn’t even open it before it was due and I had to take it right back again. This happens sometimes.

Through subscription services, I selected The Summer Wives: A Novel as my Book of the Month, and Faithbox included in its box Everybody, Always: Becoming Love in a World Full of Setbacks and Difficult People by Bob Goff. Goff’s book was a nice surprise as it happened to be on my wishlist already.

Lastly, I have received a bunch of ebook review copies from Netgalley. This month, they include:
That's a pretty good month, I think!
