Finish Year Update: June

June was an incredibly busy month, and because of that we did not reach some of our goals for the first time. Neither of us finished a book, but given the amount of books that we’ve already read this year, we’re okay with that. 

Brennan and Lesa:

  • Finish one book a month (minimum)

Brennan:  Reading “Wyatt Earp” (which is a lot longer than we realized) on the Kindle…

Lesa: Reading a few books at the moment…haven’t finished one yet.
