March in Review

I know I will say this every month, but wow March went by fast. Doesn’t it feel like it was just New Year’s Eve? How are we already a quarter of the way through the year?

March had it’s ups and downs in terms of blogging and life. I only read two books this month, and listened to three. Unfortunately, I was pretty distracted due to work related issues which made it difficult to read as much as I would have liked. However, I did write more blog entries than I have in previous months which is a trend I hope to continue.  Here are the books I read/listened to:

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Little Bee were my favorites for the month, both being really good reads. I did give up on a book this month, which is rare, although I might go back to it. The book is Thinking in Pictures by Temple Grandin. It’s non fiction and really interesting, but fiction just kept calling me and putting this book on hold. Maybe I will finish it in April. We shall see.

One of the most interesting literary things done with month was here Lionel Shriver speak. It definitely inspired me to look into hearing more authors speak.

I looking forward to lots of good reading in April. I have spring break coming up next week so hopefully I will have lots of quality reading time. Right now I am reading Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn and next up is Let The Great World Spin by Colum McCann. In the audio book world I am going to start with City of Thieves by David Benioff then possibly on to The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood.

How was your March?

  1. Looks like you had a great month!! Good choices in books as well!! Have a good April!

  2. i know a lot of people who really liked let the great world spin, but i have to say i wasn’t so enthused. i listened to the audio book and when i was finished i went back to see if i had read the abridged version which i had not – i just felt it incomplete and not enough depth i loved the premise and the characters but i felt there was so much more that it needed.

    i id read the widow of the south written about the civil war and a woman who found purpose during and after the war and loved it

  3. I’ve been wanting to read Ella Minnow Pea for so long! and yet always forget it when I’m at the bookstore and/or library. Looks to me like you have some great reading ahead.
