July Book Blowout round-up

This challenge has come to an end, (well officially it ends tomorrow but I won't finish Bellefleur tomorrow so its ended for me). I aimed to read 13 books and ended up beating that target by 1 and a half books.

My favorite out of the 13 would be joint between Persepolis and Twilight, there was a few books in there which weren't amazing but it was generally a good month. I liked having a goal for the month, and for once being able to meet it!
Mrs S' questions:
1. Did you discover a new author?
10 out of the 14 where new-to-me authors!
2. Where was the most unusual place you found yourself reading?
I read in all my usual haunts plus the garden as it finally got sunny.
3. Did you read more than usual?
I read more than a normal month as it is now the summer holidays so I have days on end to fill with reading ;-D
4. Did you give up anything in order to read more?
Working on all the stuff I planned to get ahead with for next term
5. If you won the Amazon voucher what would you spend it on?
Books, possibly The Beadle and the Bard pre-order
6. Would you like to see a 2009 Book Blowout?
Yeah, was nice to keep track of what I had read in a month
