My top book-related purchase for the month of July is my Amazon Kindle Paperwhite.

It is so compact, has no distractions, water-proof, and has allowed me to read so much more!

The backlight does not give me a headache like my phone, or iPad.

The anti-glare helps so I can read outside in the sun.

The first book that I finished was The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison.

This book is a classic novel and a must-read!

It really opened my eyes to some real things the Black Community went through during history and some of which still happens today.

With everything going on in the Black Community right now, have been trying to educate myself as much as possible.

One of my goals is to read at least one book on or by the Black community every month.

The second book I finished this month and was so good is Dune by Frank Herbert

When I worked in a book store this series was recommended to me.

I am so glad it was because this is a fantastic science fiction book, with real-life lessons in it.

It was filled with space politics, magic, mystery, survival and so much more!

I highly recommend adding this to your TBR list if you love space and science fiction.

The last book I finished in July is the second book in the Dune series, Dune Messiah by Frank Herbert.

I feel like this book was so relevant to what is going on in the world right now politically.

A bit different than the first book, this one focuses on the failures of a hero, and mistakes.

I love how this book shows that humans make mistakes, and sometimes we have to own up to them.

Even heroes and those who try to paint a perfect picture have faults.

I haven't finished this book yet but is worth mentioning.

The Brave Learner by Julie Bogart is a fantastic book so far!

Geared towards homeschool parents, but could easily be read by any educator, or parent.

It has helped me so much in how I few my children, and how they learn.

Not only that but learning to take advantage of everyday activities and life as an educational opportunity has been eye-opening.

That's it for this month's reading wrap-up, and the books I loved this past month.
