Well, I sort of fell off the blogging and reading wheel. More so blogging than reading. Maybe it will just be a summer thing. Maybe not. But here is a check in for my progress with getting rid of the pile.

It looks impressive but it has been at least a month since I checked in. On top of which I haven't much felt like reading. Most of my time has been spent filling my etsy shop, knitting, and making cheese or yogurt. All have been an interesting experience. The yogurt is definitely the best of what I have been up to. My attempt at mozzarella was barely palatable. Not sure if that is the norm for fresh mozzarella or my mistakes.

Until next time. . .

Here are the numbers of books hanging out on my TBR pile.

Pile Truth:
Books:36 (decrease) :
eBooks: 22 (increase) :(



How about you? Are you in denial?
