Bites

The storm has blown by and now it’s time to check the damage.  Did BEA cause me to spill over the retaining wall?  Do I now need to feed my pile rations of Twinkies to keep it satisfied?  Let’s find out.

The tangible pile at the beginning of the year –

With it’s own complimentary digital list –

May saw an end with 193 books.  A rather overwhelming number.  For June?  I’m up to 198.  That’s up a mere five books from last month, with one that stalled my pile by nearly the entire month of June due to its density.  Not too shabby if I do say so myself for having BEA thrown in there.  I’ve abated a minor panic attack and am only breathing a bit shallowly at the moment.  I’ll be okay.  I’m not at 200.  I’ll be okay.

Still incredibly manageable, the digital pile, with me still reading ahead of release dates.  It’s like the monkey is off my back and combing my dog for bugs or something.  He won’t find any since my dog just got groomed but he’s otherwise occupied from just being a monkey on my back,
