April Reading Wrap Up

I thought this might be my most prolific month (in pages anyway) since the monster's appearance, but alas, second best only. Still, this was fairly successful and almost entirely due to audiobooks. Good thing they are an option or I'd never get any reading done.

Of course, the challenge with audiobooks is what you're doing while you're listening to them. In my case it's a lot of commuting and then cleaning up around the house. The cleaning part is no big deal but driving. If anyone was looking closely, I'm sure they were wondering why this lady is crying in her car at 8am while sitting at the stoplight because it doesn't matter how many times I read it, The Graveyard Book brings up EMOTIONS. Something I hadn't considered when I started listening to it

Books read
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
Act Natural: A Cultural History of Misadventures in Parenting by Jennifer Traig

Resolution books
40% both for being non-US authors (Neil Gaiman and Anthony Horowitz) BUT they're both UK authors so it meets the resolution but like, not that impressive, especially considering how bad some of those other stats are
