Have done a shockingly small amount of reading this month

Probably less reading this month than I've done in years. I think I'll only have finished four books: The Annales; The Lives of the Twelve Caesars; that headache memoir All In My Head; and BJ Novak's Stories And Other Stories.

I did say that I was going to take this month off. But I guess I thought I was just joking; it's shocking to realize that I actually did take it off. I hope to get back on the horse in November.
