Wow, I guess you had a good month Agnieszka!!!
Congrats Angie!!"


Actually it wasn't that great a month, but since I was in very much pain last month I'm fine with the amount of books I was able to read.
I hope I can reach that amount of books in July. It will be a pretty busy month and I'm still not much better.
