Oh snap! Best wishes and prayers for you and your kin. Family is important, even if they are not related by blood.

Just remember every Monday brings us closer to being able to breathe easier and get back to a little normalcy. :)

Thanks! Now that things have had some real time, it is overall a bit better. Or at least less chaotic.

This was the halfway point of the year and I am not even quite 1/3 to my 100. Really hoping to step it up. June was a bad reading month all around for me.


message 14: by Jamie (new)

Jamie | 115 comments July- Not a single graphic novel or manga. HOW?! UGH work. That is how. Well not this month. I will read AT LEAST 3 this weekend.


message 15: by Jamie (new)

Jamie | 115 comments August is all about Green covers if possible. Such a refreshing color. Invigorating. New Life. Maybe it will bring me luck!

If you are looking for more volume of books I find action manga (aka shonen) have a tendency to be super fast with plenty of full page fight scenes like Bleach and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles. When I collected them I could knock out a volume during lunch somedays. :)

I didn't read much period. Work just had me crazy busy. I usually read 10-20 books a month and I did 4.

Still behind but it was a better month. If I wasn't behind, I'd be happy with that. Not much green in those August covers either but some is better than none.
Hoping for more manga in September. I did decent on other graphic novels and am lucky those count now but my manga shelves are still heavily neglected.


message 20: by Jamie (new)

Highly doubt I will be making 100 but I think already I am doing better than last year.

Ouch! I blame the insanity that was 2020. Bad year. I hope to do better this next year. I have a huge order of manga to finish up some of my series' that should be arriving soon so hopefully that inspires me.
