Reading Wrap-up for August at Moonshine and Rosefire

Hello everyone out there and I hope that you all had a terrific reading month for yourselves. I am known as Rosefire around the Internet and this is my new personal reading blog. I originally posted my reviews over at my daughter’s blog, Emeraldfire’s Bookmark but am now in the process of transferring them all over to my own blog. My daughter makes blogging look like so much fun that I thought that I would try it out for myself! πŸ™‚

Anyway, I started out August with 646 unread books lying around the house and ended the month with 641 books unread. All of the books that I acquired this month came from Bookmooch, Paperback Swap and a Library Book Sale that we went to on the 1st. Quite a number of my books that I read this month left my house to go to new homes so that’s something I guess. πŸ™‚

Let me try to break down the influx for you:
