April 2017 Reading Review

spring_Flowers_rev

So April fairly whipped by pretty speedily due to a general busy-ness of life and work. It was a pretty good reading month at the same time, but lower numbers than is traditional. (This would be due to a big mix of things, including my vision still having problems. Reading with one eye tends to slow things down, I’ve found.)

(To clarify: I still have my other eye, but the dodgy one doesn’t see very well a lot of the time. Thus the “one eye” comment. I didn’t mean that I was now Cyclops [although I might feel like that sometimes!]. I had no idea how much my reading would slow down due to this.  :-} )

The reads for April included:

So to the numbers:

Total number of books read in April: 5

Total number of pages read: 1,507 pages (av. 301).

Fiction/Non-Fiction: 4 fiction / 1 non-fiction; 0 play.

Diversity: 0 POC (that’s a bit yikes for me.) 2 books by women.

Library books vs. books I owned (and thus removed from the home abode): 1 library book, 4 owned books and 0 e-books. (Yeah. Good on working on the TBR pile.)

Plans for May is to read, read, read. How glorious is that?

  1. I just read and loved an Ada Leverson and am on the look-out for more. And Miss Read is always a reliably good author – you don’t see many people reading her any more, do you?

    • I must admit that I haven’t seen that many people reading Miss Read or Ada Leverson, but these two reads fit the bill for me on several levels, so they worked for me. How’s life?

      • Oh yes, completely. I’ve been under the weather so you’ll find a slew of comfort reads on my blog at the moment – luckily my TBR always seems to have enough gentleness to offer, and if not, I have the FULL SET of Miss Reads!
