Read in August 2012/Will read in September

My goal for August for was to read books set in Southeast Asia and I did a so-so job, with four books read (out of 15 fiction books read in August – some of which were from my previous month’s goal, to read from my towering TBR Goodreads list). However, some of that Southeast Asian reading has spilled into September, as I just finished one book set in Singapore and am still only a third of a way through another set in Malaysia. So it may turn out ok after all!

My plans for September? I’m keeping it a little more free and easy, but I do hope to read at least a couple of books for RIP VII.
