Goodbye July, IMM, & Contests

Oh, nuts. July's over and August is already here......which means summer is almost over and scho-ick, don't even think about it! Just keep enjoying the next four weeks of summer. Anywho, July has been a busy month for me and a slow month for BLT. I keep updating my Summer Reading List challenge I have only read ten books. :( Can you believe that!? Ugh. Quite a shock since I read 40 some odd last year. But I have read over 2,000 pages. How is your summer reading list going?

Both Lipstick Apology and Another Faust sound so good. I like the Daughters of the Sea cover, although I have no idea what the book's about. :P Happy reading!
