Fortnightly* Update #6

Good and bad news. I'm still behind on my challenge, but I rallied these last two weeks and completed all my quarterly challenges. A number of those books were ones that I owned so I started getting through that pile. I loved being able to physically move books from my to-read to read shelf. Yes I have one in real life.

 

I have gotten behind on reviews and have not written any this month. I'm also still behind schedule for number of books, but nothing I can't handle :)

 

*I've decided to change this a bit to a bimonthly update, on the 1st and 15th of each month. But I'm keeping the name, since I really like the word fortnight.
