JUNE WRAP UP

Monthly Reading Wrap Up

 

So, we are now half way through the year and it is time for another monthly reading  wrap up. I have dubbed June “The Month of Read-a-thons”. I decided to complete my first read-a-thon this month and from there it grew. I associate this is the massive, ginormous amount I read this month.
