April goal:

I’ll stay consistent with a goal of 3 books again for April.


What I read: 


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

  • 5 stars:  5 books
  • 4 stars: 7 books
  • 3 stars:  2 books
  • 2 stars:  0 books
  • 1 star: 0 books
  • 0 stars: 0 books
  • Abandoned: 1 book
  • Not rated: 0 books

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

  • January – 1092
  • February – 1317
  • March – 1508
  • April – 656

Reading Goals:

1. Read 36 books I finished 3 more books, so I’m 3 books ahead. (my Goodreads Challenge)

2. Decrease my TBR – 

3. Read 12 not-novels –

  • Jan – 2 (nonfiction zen, memoir)
  • Feb – 1 (memoir/audiobook)
  • Mar – 3 (3 nonfiction/memoirs, 2 of which were audiobooks)
  • Apr – 3 (2 nonfiction/memoirs, 1 poetry)

4. Read 21 minutes per day – I still haven’t missed a day (130/130), though I’m counting audiobooks as “reading.”

April wasn’t a great reading month for me, though my numbers don’t represent the 117k-word manuscript I read twice while editing of the book I abandoned 25% through or the additional time spent listening to an audiobook (I’ll finish that in May). I’m hopeful May will be a great reading month, so I’m setting a goal of 4 books.
