July Reading Slump Wrap-Up / Thinking of Starting a BookTube?

Hello everyone. It’s that time that everyone publishes their July wrap-ups and I read….

Absolutely nothing. I didn’t read a single book. I got about 100 pages into A Little Life by Hanya Yanigahara, and I even brought it on my business trip with me, but I didn’t read a single god damn page of it and as of yester, 8/1, I still hadn’t touched it so I have officially moved it to my “DNF for now, it just wasn’t the right time for this” pile.

Instead I picked up the most opposite book I could find to that in my unread book piles that I could find and I happened across the second Jackaby novel, so I’m gonna try reading that and see if it can break me out of that.

In other news, I’ve decided that as much as I like blogging, I enjoy watching BookTube videos much more than I enjoy reading blog posts. So I have decided that I’m going to make my own BookTube channel, for now with very low quality videos and natural lighting because who gives a shit? It’ll get me started, and it’s something I’ve been thinking about doing for a long ass time anyway. I’ll definitely be keeping this blog up & running, and I’ll probably try to figure out how to crosspost things between that and this blog and I’ll definitely keep you all posted on that.

My macbook finally decided to give up RIP. I’m on the market for a new laptop, and I think I’ve figured out what I want I just need to get expenses from a work trip and another work expense paid back to me before I’ll have enough money to order it. The silver lining about that is it finally gave me the motivation to DNF A Little Life and actually work towards getting out of this slump.
