Let's get reading for June!

Hi guys! I am literally overwhelmed today, I have a big event for work, so not a lot of blogging time. I did, however, want to check in with you real quick and make some summer reading plans.


I heard back from a few of you about finishing up Church of Spies. Several votes were cast for finishing in June, and a few indicated that they were fine extending into July if need be. I'll be honest: I'm worried about being able to finish the whole thing in June. :0 So my initial thought was to extend into July. Here's the scoop:
  • We will finish up Church of Spies in June, and discuss on Wednesday, June 29th. That gives us four full weeks to finish the remaining chapters, which are chapters 6 through 26. Multiple people noted how much faster the book reads as you get further into it, so I think this is doable. #hopespringseternal
  • The next book club over here at Life of a Catholic Librarian will be in the fall. I'll put up a poll in midish August for voting, and we'll start reading in September!
Whew, I think that's everything. Who's reading along with me?! I'd love to hear from you!


  1. I'll be attempting to read along for both! :)
    And I like this plan! It seems very well thought out. ;)

  2. The book club schedule worked out perfectly. I'm kinda glad that Church of spies will be done before it is time to start The summer before the war, which looks interesting. I've requested The summer before the war from the library and I hope it gets to me before July. If not I'll try playing catch up in August. Hope your work event went well.

  3. Hi Sam! YAY! So glad to have you aboard for the entire summer. :)

  4. Hi Melanie! So thrilled that you'll be reading with us for the entire summer as well! We have lots of lead time, so hopefully the copy at your library will come available this month. 3 cheers!


Thank you for commenting! I read and appreciate every single one, and I will respond to each one personally!
