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.
What I read: (Link to my Goodreads 2018 Reading Challenge)
Maureen Johnson – 4* (Mar 5)
David Levithan – 5* (Mar 6)
|Vacationland: True Stories from Painful Beaches
John Hodgman – 4* (Mar 15)
|A Wrinkle in Time
Madeline L’Engle – 3* (Mar 22)
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
1. Read 40 books – I’ve read 10. Goodreads still says I’m on-track.
2. Decrease my TBR –
- Jan 1 – 88 physical / 19 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.
