March goal:

I’m going to try to make up for that by reading 5 books in March.


What I read: 

  1. On the Come UpAngie Thomas
  2. The Hand on the Wall—Maureen Johnson
  3. Y Is for YesterdaySue Grafton
  4. A Dream About Lightning Bugs: A Life of Music and Cheap LessonsBen Folds (audiobook)
  5. The House on Mango StreetSandra Cisneros

Excuse(s) for Not Reading More: I read a lot in March. It was great.

Diversity? Not bad. Some vignettes, an audiobook/memoir, some YA, and a mystery.

Star Ratings: Based 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:  6 books
  • 3 stars:  3 books
  • 2 stars:  1 book
  • 1 star: 0 books
  • 0 stars: 0 books
  • Abandoned: 0 books (though I’m close on one…)
  • Not rated: 0 books

Pages Read: (does not include abandoned books, edited manuscripts, etc.)

  • January – 1085
  • February – 880
  • March – 1753 (in part due to an audiobook that I started way back mid-February)

Reading Goals:

1. Read 48 books I’m behind by 1 as of this writing. (my Goodreads Challenge)

2. Decrease my TBR – 

3. Read 12 not-novels – Nonfiction, poetry, essays, or fiction anthologies all count.

  • Jan – 2 (pocket quotes, nonfiction zen)
  • Feb – 0
  • Mar – 2 (vignettes, audiobook/memoir)

I made my March goal of 5 books, but April has been a disaster (as evidenced by this late update). I’m going to set a very low goal of 2 books.
