July 2018 Wrap Up

Here’s my July 2018 wrap up!

Here we are in August already! Hope you are having a fantastic summer.

Time is short, so let’s get right to it!

This month I read only two books! To be fair, I was super sick for about 3.5 weeks of this month sooo…

I read:

I listened to two audiobooks as well:

I wrote two book reviews:

 

 

I also posted:

And I participated in cover reveals for:

July’s Book Haul:

That’s the July 2018 wrap up – Here’s a look ahead to August!

TBW:

  • Resource Lists:
    • New Reads for the Rest of Us for September 2018
    • Another resource list – topic TBD

I have been writing a lot for work but also reviewing other people’s writing, so that has kept me busy as well. Right now I am editing biographies of Wisconsin Suffragists for a new online dictionary of suffrage being published by Alexander Street Press; I am editing and reviewing two articles (by others) for publication in academic journals; and I am trying to research and write my own chapter for inclusion in an upcoming ebook about women and leadership around the world – my piece focuses on the role libraries can play in women’s leadership development.

It is no wonder I am having trouble keeping up!

So that’s the July 2018 wrap up! What are you looking forward to in August? Do you have any ideas of topics for my next resource list?

The Nix by Nathan Hill

What I’m Reading – 8 Jan 2018

It was hard to get away from news about Oprah’s speech at the Golden Globes last night and her possible interest in running for president, but I managed it! Here’s what I’m reading today:

I’m still making my way through Call Me By Your Name and Homegoing – although I should specify that I am listening to Homegoing on my massive commute each day.

I do enjoy a good narrator for an audiobook. Homegoing is narrated by Dominic Hoffman who does an excellent job changing his voice a bit depending on the character. He has a deep, commanding voice. I also enjoyed Ari Fliakos, who narrated The Nix. Just the way he read it made it funny.

What about that Casey Affleck? While we know he has troubles keeping his hands to himself, he also is no good at book reading. He took The Jungle, an otherwise already gross book, and made it much, much worse. His pronunciations are a bit lacking.

What are your favorite audiobooks?
