MY READING DIARY:
JULY
2018

July is over and done for the year and here's my reading diary for the month!


01.07
It's the beginning of July and today is Sunday! Since I've got the day off, I slept late and then read for a bit before breakfast (which was more like lunch to be honest). I'm currently reading The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, Race by Toni Morrison and A Place For Us by Fatima Farheen Mirza.

Now, because I didn't have that much left of The Glass Castle, I read the last few chapters of that, before moving onto Race which I read the remaining 85 pages in. After that, I watched two movies in a row and then in the evening I read about 20 pages of A Place For Us.
Pages read: 155

Started reading Hillbilly Elegy by J. D. Vance on my Kindle after work and read four chapters of that.
Pages read: 70

Pages read: 269

17.07
Read 54 pages of The Fact of A Body in the morning and then 82 pages of Wild before I went to work in the evening (although I will say, I may have skimmed a few of those pages because I was a bit bored by it).
