March passed by in a flash and that speed-of-light passing was reflected in my reading totals for the month. At first, I thought this low number was quite strange, but when I look back at other past March reading totals since I started teaching, I can see it’s historically this way. I think I forget just how busy and occupying teaching can be sometimes. Plus – there were Spring Break travels!
Still, no worries.
The reads for March 2019 included:
- Essentials of College and University Teaching – Eleanor Boyle and Harley Rothstein (NF) – no blog post (since work-related)
- All Passion Spent – Vita Sackville-West (actually, I ended up reading this 2x)
- There, There – Tommy Orange (F) POC author/POC topic
- Cooking and Stealing: The Tin House NF Reader – Charles d’Ambrosia (ed.)
And wow. No review blog posts. Gasp. Never mind. I’m going to do a recap post with some reviewlettes in a bit to get me back up to speed…
So to the numbers:
- Total number of books read in March 2019: 5
- Total number of pages read: 1,219 pages (av. 244).
- Fiction/Non-Fiction: 3 fiction / 2 non-fiction.
- Diversity: 1 POC. 2+ books by women. (The + is because I read a couple of anthology-type books which included both male and female authors.)
- Library books vs. books I owned (and thus removed from the home abode): 2 library books, 3 owned books and 0 e-books.
Plans for April include continuing the POC author/topic focus, finishing up a read of a teaching skills book, and placing my focus back on my own TBR.
