    Hi Stu, I hope you wife is feeling better now. I hate when my loved one is ill–I’d rather be ill myself! I got on track with Don Quixote, and put up my first Don Quixote post last night.

    Hope Amanda is feeling better, Stu. Poor Winston looks like he missed his mummy.

    Great reading for July and good luck with your upcoming challenges 🙂

    I’m also glad that Amanda is feeling a bit better. You still managed to get a lot of reading in, and I’m looking forward to hearing what you read this coming month.

    Glad to hear that your wife is feeling better Stu. I read relatively less in July. I’m hoping to read more in August. Looking forward to the Cape Verde book.

    Glad that your Winston’s mommy is feeling better. I know that my Winston is very lost whenever one of his family members is away! It seems like you’ve still managed to have a productive reading month nevertheless — and Oe is the only author I’ve heard of, from all the books you’ve finished reading. Plenty for me to look up.
