I read 9 novels, 1 short story and 13 Mr. Men books in April.
I also managed my challenge to read at least 2 paperbacks a month too, by reading my paperback copy of The Teacher and the 13 Mr. Men books with my 6 year old niece who came to visit for a few days 🙂
Ooh, and I also read 6 books of the Bible, which takes me back to a challenge I actually started a couple of years ago. In January 2015 I set myself the challenge to read the complete Bible within a year. I discovered that was an unrealistic challenge, and in fact hadn’t picked up my Bible since June 2015! It became so heavy going and somewhat depressing to read, so I kept putting it off. The good news is that it was just a rather extended temporary avoidance, and as of this April I am continuing my challenge to complete reading the Bible. However, I’ve decided not to put a time limit on it this time. I’ll continue to read it regularly for as long as my interest remains, and if I need to take a break then so be it.
My other challenge is to get my NetGalley shelf down to 5 books or less. In March I had 12 books to read and none pending. I’ve now got 11 to read and 1 pending, due to me constantly adding more books, argh! I must get 4 of those read in May, as 2 are published in May, and 2 were published in April, one of which I’m currently reading, and the other April one is a book I just added, due to everyone else loving it, and me battling with a fear of missing out 😉 So I’m just playing catch up on those. But overall I’m happy that I haven’t got really behind on NetGalley, phew!
Here are the books I read in April…
