Finished 9th book

I read another book, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. This one took me about 5 days. It was hard as I hate to put a book down once I start, but this one was just too long to do so (over 500 pages.)

I read this book in high school, but did not fully enjoy it until now. It is hard to see a child struggle so, but also refreshing that the main character still can find love although she has never been loved by anyone for very long (her uncle loved her, but died when she was very young.) Not only does she find love in another, but she also has love for herself. This is very admirable.

So in two months I have read 9 books. I should have started in June and I would have made my goal of 14 books, but 9 is still good.

What have you read this summer?

Great job on your reading! Finishing a book in five days is pretty good, if you ask me :) I tend to have so many books going at once, I read a few pages here, and a few pages there, and sometimes it takes me a while to get all the way through ;)

Jane Eyre is my absolute favorite book! My mom even read from it at our wedding.
