What I Read in May 2019

Back on track with the monthly book posts! I read 6 books in May, which isn’t how many I would need to be on pace for my 100 books this year goal, but is significantly up from my average per month so far this year (3.3). I’ve been trying to pick up more books I’m dying to read and can’t put down (which often means fiction), and that seems to be working to get me reading more. Hey, whatever works! {Read More}

What I Read in Q1 2019

I haven’t done a “what I read” post since January – oops! That’s partially because I’ve been too busy to create this post, and partially because I haven’t been reading enough to warrant it. So far this year, I’m up to 18 books read – which is 16 short of where I should be if I want to read 100 books this year. We’ll see if it happens, but even if it doesn’t, it’s a good stretch goal to keep {Read More}
