My average is sneaking up. Am I picking better books, or just getting soft?

Not too shabby, that. I'm kind of proud. That's more than one every other day.


I did a massive amount of reading this month. A lot of that is due to the compulsive nature of the Pretty Little Liars series, perhaps, but I was just on some kind of reading rampage. I finished the aforementioned series, knocked out a couple of things that have been on my "To-be-read" list for way too long (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Coraline, and The Stepford Wives), and found a new series to get way-too-invested-in (Percy Jackson). I even had a five-star read, which is not something I can say every month. And, as always, I just barely managed to sneak in my Read-by-the-month reading challenge, perhaps on a technicality (or at least in the most terrifying way possible).


All in all, I'm pretty impressed (read: petrified) by the amount of reading I managed to do, but I feel like I got a lot out of what I read this month in particular. Next month, I am probably going to devour all of George R.R. Martin's short stories (I am about halfway through Dreamsongs I, and absolutely loving it) and hopefully finish at least some of the books on my "Currently Reading" list, which is, a friend texted to inform me, more than 40 books long. I feel like I should re-title it "Kind-of-sort-of-reading-somewhere-around-now" or something at this point.


How did everyone's April go? Lots of reading? Find anything fabulous that changed your life? Am I the only one that reads forty books at a time? Just curious.
