No Friday Reads post this week because I haven’t read a thing since my last Friday Reads post two weeks ago. What?!?! I’ve been traveling and while I always think I’ll read on the plane or to chill before sleep at night, it rarely happens.

Let’s instead look at my March wrap-up.

My goal for March:

For March, I’ll set a goal of 3 books.

Excuse(s) for Not Reading More: I missed the last 9 days of March due to travel and preparation for travel. Spoiler alert: I’m also off to a slow start for April.

Diversity? A whole lot of YA, memoir/personal essay

Star Ratings: I base this on the flat stars Goodreads displays in list-view, not the quarter-star system I assign in my reviews.

  • 5 stars:  2 books
  • 4 stars:  3 books
  • 3 stars:  4 books
  • 2 stars:  1 books
  • 1 star: 0 books
  • 0 stars: 0 books
  • Abandoned: 2 books

Pages Read: (does not include abandoned books)

  • January – 849
  • February – 1122
  • March – 1268

Reading Goals:

1. Read 40 books – I’ve read 10. Goodreads still says I’m on-track.

2. Decrease my TBR – 

  • Jan 1 – 88 physical19 Kindle
  • Feb 1 – 89 / 19
  • Mar 1 – 80/20 (I purged a LOT of books, but some were previously read and 3 were gifts)
  • Apr 6 – 85/22 (It was my birthday and I like to buy books as souvenirs)

I managed to read 4 books only because 3 were YA and several library holds became available all at once. For April, since almost a week has passed and I haven’t read anything, I’ll set a goal of 3 books.
