Monthly Review (July 2010)

Sorry for the impromptu blogging break, there, but I was unexpectedly busier with my class than I thought I’d be. Luckily it’s over now, and I’ve got around three weeks before fall classes start– so let’s see if I can catch up with all the reviews I need to write, eh? Especially since I’ve only written, uh, one review for July’s reads.

The hardest part is getting myself motivated! I’m a procrastinator at heart, and the prospect of writing over 20 reviews isn’t a welcome one. I foresee a lot of mini-reviews in the future…

Affiliate Earnings
Amazon: $10.21; yay! This is partially thanks to my coworker who used my affiliate links to buy socks and beef jerky, but also because some people (or one person, at least) bought a few books I’ve reviewed here! I’m always extremely happy when someone does that, because it lets me know that my reviews are effective at getting people to read books.
Powell’s: $0; nothing yet, but I’ve only just switched to it. It may take a few months to work its way up? Hopefully?
Total for the year so far: $44.89
Results: I can definitely buy a book next month (which is when the money should deposit into my account, I think)! Huzzah!

  1. Welcome back! Looks like you had a very full reading month! I am curious what you thought of the Dirk Gently, I’ve never read anything by Adams other than his Hitchhiker’s Guide.

    1. I LOVED it. 😀 I actually like it a little better than Hitchhiker’s, I think because Dirk and the others are slightly more likable to me than Arthur and Ford.
