Comment: It's completely okay that you are late; I had to reach out to my partner because I instinctually emailed instead of snail mail! Thank you for the bookmark, I am always up for book talk, though my history information tends to come from romance novels (with me fact checking it). Really great on your goal, after my trip I have no idea where my July goals are sitting right now.

Comment: Thank you for sharing your list. I had read The Martian a few years back (before the movie came out). I do think (like you) that the audio book would be better plus it had Will Wheaton in it. I am interested in the mystery series mentioned by you. Have been looking for a cozy mystery for a while. Happy reading and happy swapping to you!
