My new job is taking up a lot more time that I thought it would – which results in less reading time. I need to work on finding a balance though. Let’s hope that happens during October!

As usual my August wrap up is late, but only by three days. I didn’t read too much, probably because I was spending too much time outside enjoying the nice weather while it’s here – it’s already starting to feel like fall!

I’ll be starting a new job this month, so I’m not sure how much reading I’ll get done. New jobs always take at least a couple weeks to get used to, so I’ll see how it goes. I’m planning on bringing a book (or maybe even two) with me for breaks and lunches, so I’ll at least get that time to read.

I obviously didn’t get much reading done this month. But really, can you blame me? The weather has been pretty fantastic the last couple weeks except for a major hailstorm. Sometimes you just can’t resist the call of a walk by the river on a pretty day.
