I’ll be doing a Hall of Fame post in June. At that time I’ll have to pick my favorite fiction and nonfiction book for April. Right now it hurts my brain to even try. Ouch.

Wasn’t April great for readers? So many fab events! Read-a-Thons, World Book Night, yahoo!

  1. Ok that is a lot of books πŸ™‚ My Goodreads challenge ticker keeps telling me how I'm 10 books behind the yearly goal. And my yearly goal is only 80! πŸ˜€


  2. I'm singing Alicia Keys song to you . . . \”This girl is on FFIIIIIIIRRRRRRREE!!! . . .\” Just WOW!! I was so happy the read-a-thon put me ahead too. I love how you have read books I've just purchased and am about to read! I recently purchased Beautiful Ruins (finally in paperback)after I listed to a talk radio show where it was highly recommended.


  3. I am so jealous of the number of books you read in April. It's setting the bar for my summer months! My favorite book in April was \”One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are,\” by Ann Voskamp. It was part of my search for personal change and ended up being the last of a long list, but also the best.


  4. Wow, congrats!! That's an amazing amount of books in one month πŸ™‚ I thought I was doing worse, but I'm actually on pace still for my goals, and now that the school year/concert season is winding down, I'm hopeful to get caught up (and/or ahead!) on my reading now in May. Yay! Best book I read in April was Mario Puzo's \”The Godfather.\”


  5. Wow, that's a lot of books! Great list. I didn't read as much as I had hoped in April, and I'm not sure what my favorite book was. Hmmm, probably Gaskell's North and South (I'm not sure how I missed that one until my 30s!).


  6. Wowee! I am so impressed, what a great month you had! I totally bombed with the read-a-thons, couldn't get as much done as I'd hoped. Hopefully things will settle down soon so I can get back to reading! Interview with the vampire is calling my name!


  7. Thanks Tanya πŸ˜€ I'm sorry to hear that the read-a-thons didn't go as well as you had hoped. Real life gets in the way at times (Boo!) I hope you enjoy Interview. I loved the heck out of that book when I read it!


  8. Homeschool…that must be hard but a lot of fun. And definitely explains the extra reading time πŸ™‚ By the time I've finished work, fed and got the kids in bed it doesn't leave me a whole lot of time to read. But I'm finding ways to fit extra time in πŸ™‚
