In July I my husband and I took a trip to Michigan for a family wedding and a reunion with his cousin on the shore of Lake Huron. I never made it to the ocean beach (surprisingly not that many residents of LA go to the beach very often and I am one of those.) But I made it to one of the Great Lakes!
I read one more book than I did in June but I am still being a slacker compared to earlier years. As long as I am being obsessive about stats, I am up one from this time last year!
Stats: 8 books read, 7 by women, 2 memoirs, 1 autobiography, 1 nonfiction.
Favorites: The Chronology of Water is the most powerful memoir I've ever read. Blackberry Winter is the autobiography of Margaret Mead, one of my sheros. The Little Brother.
Least favorite: The Weight of Heaven.
