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:
- The Limit – Ada Leverson (1911)
- Plan B – Jonathon Tropper (2011) – no blog post
- Friends at Thrush Green – Miss Read (1991)
- This Side of Paradise – F. Scott Fitzgerald (1920)
- A Curious Mind – Brian Grazer/Charles Fishman (2013)
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?
