This is a list of all of the books that I read in August, broken up into Children's Books and Adult Fiction. This month was relatively heavy on adult books, because I was traveling almost the whole time, and often I find it easier to take fewer, more dense books. September should be a better month for reading. I have already begun by finally finding time to immerse myself in the long-deferred (ok, three weeks, but it seemed longer) Eclipse. I also swear that this month, I will finally catch up on reviews. What are you all reading?
