Yes, I know it’s April, and yes, I know everyone else is posting their March wrap-ups, while I’m here with mine for February. I could’ve skipped ahead but I didn’t like the thought of a gap in my archives for 2019, so here we are. Also, I read so few books in March, I need some motivation that I can get back on track this April.
February was a little out of the ordinary for me. I only listened to one audiobook out of the
2018 started off well reading-wise. I finished 15 books last month, which is close to the 16 I got through last year January. While in 2017, the Bout of Books read-a-thon helped get through quite a number of books, this year I only managed 2 books that week. Then I spontaneously joined the 24in48 Readathon because my weekend plans went bust due to the flu and a wrist injury. I got through nearly 5 books. So yes, read-a-thons can be a great motivating factor.
Last month, we moved back home, as the major works of our renovations were done. This also meant that I had to avail myself on those days that workers came in to continue, so I didn’t have much spare time left to read. In the end, I read 6 books. Three were hardcovers, two were audiobooks, and one was a paperback.
