I finally caught up on my posts on Instagram. More importantly, I’m back to reading actual books! I’m happy to count audiobooks as “reading,” but even I’m willing to admit that my February “reading” barely qualified. But this last month, I’ve read several books on my Kindle. 

March goal:

I’ll commit to 3 books for March, including Patrick Stewart’s audiobook that is soooooooo long (but good). I did not finish the book club choice for the last meeting, but I’m reading it now. Here’s hoping I can get caught up soon!

What I read:


  • Making It SoPatrick Stewart
    • Audiobook
    • 40% complete before the library took it away
    • It’s so long…
    • I will finish it eventually


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!

2024 Progress

  • February – 593p, 14h 41m
  • March – 1034p, 0 (I listened to some but didn’t finish)

Reading Goals:

1. Read 36 books I finished 3 books toward my Goodreads Challenge and I’m on track.

  • Audiobooks: 3
  • Kindle: 5
  • Physical books: 0

2. Decrease my TBR – 

* I purged a LOT of books when we moved, so I’ll need to update this once we unpack at some future date.

3. Read 24 minutes per day – I’m on Day 930 of my reading streak.

It’s nice to be reading regularly again. And I hit my goal, even if I didn’t finish Patrick Stewart’s audiobook. I need to use an Audible credit for it, I guess. Or just DNF. 

I’ll commit to 3 books for April (I’ve already finished my first).
