June 2023 Wrap-Up
First of all, thank you to those offering Happy Anniversary wishes. We had an amazing time away with a lovely meal. We saw a view that a beloved local author called 'The Finest View in England' and which has inspired me to re-read his wonderful books.
I have missed doing my wrap-ups so much. It's a great way to look back at my reading and also what I've been up to in the month.

To Be Read
I had a bit of a sort out of my To Be Read pile, as I cannot cope if it is too many. On my shelves there are *does a quick tot-up* 27 books. That's roughly half a year's reading. Blimey.
Looking Forward To
We have a number of lovely celebrations taking place in 2022. A very good friend celebrates their 40th birthday, which means a lovely weekend in Leeds. We are debating going to watch the Sunderland Triathlon which has moved out of Leeds.
Reading wise, I will be looking forward to reading the author I mentioned above, and some lovely choices on my To Be Read pile. I do hope June has been good for you.
