[Books] August 2020 Reads

My August 2020 Reads

 August was a pretty good month for reading for me, even though I felt like I slowed down a bit right at the very end of the month. But hey, it was my birthday, so I had other activities to focus on apart from reading, so it's understandable, right?

My novel reading has generally been more productive thanks to my return to the BattleTech novels, but that segment of my library is mostly covered by now. At least I still have comics to fill in the gaps.

For August, I managed to cover a total of 31 titles. This included 9 novels/novellas, 20 comic book trade paperback equivalents, and only 2 audiobooks. I really don't do enough walking in the month to rack up more listening, but I did cover a really good book in the form of the Audible Sandman original production.

Most of my book-reading was still BattleTech driven, as mentioned before. I've hit the end of the original run of the Classic BattleTech novels, so I've started going over the expanded universe beyond that including exclusive novellas that I got from a Kickstarter and some other stuff. I ended the month by getting started on The Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives in Your Home novel, which was a longer book than expected and so falls under my September reads.

The big comic book focus for this month was finally reading the first ten volumes of the Fullmetal Alchemist manga that I got on sale on comiXology. They were very fun to read and helped me as a guy who mainly remembers the original anime series to appreciate the original story. Also got caught up on Immortal Hulk, which was pretty heavy. 

I'm still behind for my end-of-year reading goal on Goodreads, so I really need to catch up because the fourth quarter is just around the corner.
