My life in books over the past 3 weeks:

- Literary Escapes--I have read books set in 31 states so far, adding Michigan and Utah in the past two weeks. I have read in 46 countries so far, adding Hungary, Belgium and ... in the past two weeks.
- Motif Reading Challenge--The July motif is "Through the years" (read a book involving time travel, changes in time, etc). I have chosen Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah since it spans many decades of a friendship.

- YA Award Winners--I have read 10 of the 11 winners
- My Own Books--I read 21 books off my shelves from March 15 to May 15, 2019.
I am finally back from our vacation (you may read about Prague and the UK, the river cruise, and Berlin in these posts). I was overwhelmed by how many blog posts were waiting for me in Feedly for books, education, technology, etc. I'll confess I deleted all the non-book posts, which numbered in the hundreds, and am slowly making my way through the book posts.
I really relaxed on our vacation, not doing any work, posting, etc. It has really helped me to reset my brain for the coming school year and I am busy unsubscribing from all the emails that come my way each day that I never read. It feels good.
