April’s over? Wow.

April goal:

No idea what April will bring, so I’ll commit to 4 books.


What I read: 

Note: I quit linking titles to that big site that funds the rich dude and his space wars with other rich dudes. I’ve linked to Goodreads, but if you’re looking to support independent bookstores, my favorite local shop is Old Town Books (they ship!), and you can support my favorite podcast and a local shop of your choosing through their Bookshop.org link at KickBezosInTheBalls.org. And you can never go wrong with your local library!


2022 Progress

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

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

  • January – 2170, 20h 19m
  • February – 1442, 27h 45m
  • March – 2066, 20h 53m
  • April – 1294, 7h 6m

Reading Goals:

1. Read 36 books I finished 4 books toward my Goodreads Challenge. I’m 9 books ahead of my goal (56%).

2. Decrease my TBR – 

3. Read 12 not-novels –

  • Jan: 5 (1 development, 3 memoir, 1 nonfiction—and 4 audiobooks)
  • Feb: 2 (2 memoir/audiobook)
  • Mar: (1 memoir + 2 other audiobooks)
  • Apr: (1 nonfiction audiobook)

4. Read 22 minutes per day – The streak is still alive. Counting my 2021 goal of reading 21 minutes per day, I’m on a 227-day streak.

April was a bit of a reading struggle. I didn’t do any jigsaw puzzles, which means I didn’t spend much time listening to audiobooks. I’ll commit to 4 books for May.
