I have a confession: coming out of March’s reading high with the March of Books excitement, I took a bit of a reading break in April. Instead of finishing books, I went on a starting books spurt. I think I’ve started at least half a dozen! After starting them, I’ve read a few sentences here and there, but have barely made it out of the first chapters. My little reading challenge widget is probably thanking me that last month, I managed to pull ahead by four books.
In March I read more story books than I’ve read for years. This month I’m going heavy on motivational and educational. I amuse myself by the way I have been tending to group my books in to trends and topics this year. It is unintentional and sometimes makes for a little bit of a mental overload. That’s why I tossed in a bit of humor in the form of The hair-raising joys of Raising boys”. I don’t know if it is all good, but the parts I’ve read have been hilarious and provided a much needed break from the heavy stuff.
My goals for May are to finish my stack and to not start any new ones until I do! Plus, I have three book reviews in the works. I’ve read a lot of good stuff this year, and am looking forward to sharing some more of that with you guys in the days ahead.
Now it is your turn! How did April work out for you all reading wise?
What is your favorite just-read book? (Even if I’m not starting new ones this month, it doesn’t mean I can’t plan ahead for next month, right? ;))
