Alexis Summer Reading Challenge

Well, I ALMOST did it. I managed to read 8 1/2 of the 10 books I wanted to read. The last 3 1/2 books were The Appomatox Series by Gilbert Morris. I love his historical fiction. I have enjoyed reading about the Rocklin family and plan to finish the entire series. I will admit that I enjoyed his Winslow series better though. The Winslow series travels through time from the Revolution on whereas The Appomatox series is all about the Civil War (which IS my favorite era) and different entitities of the Rocklin family. Some of the stuff just tends to be repetetive with staying in that tight of a time frame.

I guess I didn't quite make it, but I was glad that I took the challenge because I got more reading done this summer than I have in a few years. I love to read and I have missed the chance to read a good book. My only problem is that I tend to get obsessed and have to finish it within a day or two and I get NOTHING else done. Oh well! I'll pace myself and make sure to enjoy at least one to two books a month from now on.
