Remember how I said this is a no-stress challenge? Well, when I wrote that way back when the calendar turned from 2014 to 2015, I had no idea that we’d be moving right smack in the middle of the heatwave of 2015, or that we’d have multiple issues with the house we have purchased, most of which have prevented us from making the progress we’d normally make. (Steady Eddie and I are both very hard workers when we have a goal, and we’ve had lots of help to get this done. All of the problems have been outside our control. We still haven’t even slept in the house overnight! However, we have made significant progress in the past two days. I expect to have the whole family moved in today or tomorrow!) I said all that not to elicit sympathy but to say that no, I haven’t actually finished a book for the Newbery Through the Decades Challenge this month. I’ve definitely been preoccupied with other things. 🙁 I am 2/3 of the way through the very short Knee-Knock Rise by Natalie Babbitt, but seeing as how I don’t even know where it is at the present moment, I can’t very well finish it. If I do find it and finish it, I’ll try to come back and share my semi-coherent thoughts about it. 🙂
What about you? Has your June been conducive to reading? Please share!
