Now that the library is processing holds I have a whack load of library books to read so I think most of July is going to be spent on them. I am going to commit to reading only 2 books from the TBR pile for July.

I set my goals for SIY#53

2 non-fiction
1 classics
1 in German
1 audio-book
3 others

I would like to start working on them

For me, July will be taken up with reading from my Hugo and Aurora Voter Packets. I usually vote for these awards every year, and I try to read as many of the nominees as I can. Once voting is over (July 22 for Hugo and July 25 for Aurora), I'll be able to concentrate on my BookCrossing books again!

I have read one book from the TBR pile and I am currently reading another one so I have hopes I can do this month's goal. I have also finished off 6 library books (but I still have a teetering pile to get through).

>5 gypsysmom: There were a lot of great books on the nominee lists. From the Hugo, my favourites were Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir and The City in the Middle of the Night by Charlie Jane Anders. From the Auroras, my favourites were A Brightness Long Ago by Guy Gavriel Kay and Jade War, the second book in Fonda Lee's Green Bone Saga.
