Today’s the last day of March, so it’s time for my monthly wrap-up thoughts and such! March was pretty awesome: I got a job, I built two shelves and I bought new glasses! And new sunglasses!1 In book/blog news, I posted 28 posts (including this one)– almost one a day!– and I read 25 books. WOW.
My favorite part of March was participating in Diana Wynne Jones Month. I really loved reading a bunch of DWJ books while knowing that other people were doing the same, and that we were all doing it because we loved her/her books so much. I haven’t felt so connected to book fandom since the last time I went to a Harry Potter release party! Yay!
Thanks so much to Kristen M. for hosting DWJ March again this year! I look forward to doing it again next year. 😀
For April, my goals are to catch up on my reviews (I’m 8 behind, currently), listen to two more audiobooks, and to visit the library more. I’d also like to (finally) buy my plane tickets to BEA, post at least two discussion posts, get my TBR List spreadsheet completed, go to the LA Times Festival of Books, and start making plans for some sort of readalong or reading challenge for the summer.
Do you have any goals for April?
My March stats will be posted tomorrow!
Currently Reading (19)
Instead of my usual Currently Reading info, I thought I’d post something about the books I got from the library yesterday. I’ve always liked Eva‘s thing about putting your library books on your bookshelf like they’ve become part of your collection, so I did the same. Here’s a picture to prove it!
The books I got are:
The only downside to all the hardbacks is that I have to drag them along with me on the bus to work– very heavy. But worth it, I hope!
What did you get from the library this week?
- They haven’t come in yet, but I’ll take pics when they do. I realize I say that about everything, but I really mean it this time. ↩
