Book binge minus the blog binge - Monthly Update June 2010

June flew by and I did a bit of reading but haven't gotten my act together to post as of late - exhausted from audiobook week! How do daily posters do it?!

In the queue for posting are...
On Folly Beach by Karen White
Memory of Water by Karen White
I'd Rather We Got Casinos by Larry Wilmore
The American by Andrew Britton
The End of Summer by Rosamunde Pilcher
The Russian Concubine by Kate Furnivall

The state of the challenges...
A-Z Reading Challenge 2010 - I'm halfway through and we're halfway through the year. Yeah me!
Audiobook Challenge 2010 - More than halfway done - not sweating this one!
Spring Reading Thing 2010 - I had twelve books on my list and I read a dismal 4, only 25%...FAIL! I still need to write my wrap-up post for this one.
Women Unbound - I've read four of the five books and it doesn't end until November - I'm confident this one will get done. Do need to update my challenge post though....
The Chronicles of Narnia Challenge - This one is coming around again - I need to write my start up post (that link is last year's wrap up). The Magician's Nephew is on Youngest's summer reading list for school so I will definitely be reading that one again! Haven't decided what else I want to do.
What's In A Name 3 Reading Challenge - My "to-do" list includes signing up for this one. I missed it last year and know that I want to play this year.
Colorful Reading Challenge 2010 - This is another one I want to join but am running a little late! 9 books with color names in the titles - I've got green, red, and black already!

What's on tap for July?
Family vacation - 26 of the Round File extended brood will gather at Folly Beach for some sun and surf and probably, with all those people, some squabbling! Then it's Cub Scout Camp - for the very last time. This is Youngest's last year as a Cub Scout, next year he moves up to Boy Scouts and guess who doesn't move up with him? His mama. Hooray! So it will be quiet around here for just a little bit while I am on vacation - using that term loosely!

Wow, you're making great progress on your challenges!

The family get together sounds great, squabbles and all.
