Monthly Update

So April is the first month that I actually met (mostly) my monthly reading challenge. I read 14 books this month, but now feel the slightest bit burned out. I haven't wanted to read anything since finishing Silver Borne on Tuesday. (That will pass, right?)

As for the rest of my goals, well, I haven't touched any of the stack of military nonfiction I have piled up since, hmm, February, haven't started the Harry Potter reading challenge (although I have until the end of July to read the books), and I haven't finished Mere Christianity or Bleak House. I did pick up 2666 and read about four pages before putting it down. I just can't get into that book.

Books read in 2010: 39
Books that should have been read in 2010: 59
Time I have to catch up: limited

Congrats on reaching your April goal. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around how you can get so much reading done. (Do you wrap the books in waterproof paper and bring them in the shower?)

I'll be happy if I finish one book this month. And I don't even have a full-time job as an excuse.

Thanks, Trace.

What one book are you trying to finish this month?

Reading two right now: On Writing by Steven King and Stuffed by Hank Cardello.

I've never heard of "Stuffed." I'll have to check it out.
