Bookends: June 2014

The first day of each month, I’m posting a summary of what I read the previous month and what I plan to read in the coming month. I would love if this could become a conversation in the comments about what’s on your reading list, too!

Major accomplishment for June: I finished Middlemarch!

The rest is just icing on the cake.

July marks the beginning of my Habit Experiment and includes some summer fun, so hopefully I’ll still be able to find ample time to read. And perhaps eat some cake and icing.

Oh, and Sisters Book Club is reading The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown for July. Visit our Goodreads Group to join the discussion!

Middlemarch by George Eliot (classic fiction, Cavalcade of Classics and Sisters Book Club)

The Sibling Effect by Jeffrey Kluger (nonfiction, for Sisters Book Club)
