Reading Wrap-up For June at Emeraldfire's Bookmark

Monday, July 1, 2013


Hello everyone out there and I hope that you all had a terrific reading month for yourselves. I am known as Emeraldfire around the Internet and this is my new personal reading blog.

Anyway, I started out June with about two hundred unread books lying around the house and ended the month with...umm...uncountable amounts of books unread. All of the books that I acquired this month came from a Library Book Sale that we went to on the 1st, Netgalley, authors and Amazon.
