A few days late this month, because 1st of July was my birthday, then yesterday I spent the day starting to tidy up my house. It’s not a one-day kind of job, but when I woke this morning I realised it’s July! And I’d not yet posted my Month of Reading!

Half of June was taken up by the Future Bookshop residency and winding-up of Emerging Writers Festival. I’m on university holidays, and I should have had lots of time to read (and write!), but I honestly don’t know what I’ve been doing with my time!

I did re-discover the magical place that is Kew Salvos though, and so I came out with all the “books bought” below for just $10.

Anyway, here’s the books I spent time with this month. What did you read?
