April 2019 Wrap Up

 

I knew my April would be a bit slower with vacation and I wasn’t wrong.  For the first time in as long as I can remember, I didn’t read a single page from a book for days.  I read nothing on vacation unless you count menus and tourist info.  Luckily I read a decent amount before we left and I squeezed in a bit after we got back.

I decided to sign up for the 2019 Pages Read Challenge hosted by Book Dragon’s Lair.  I thought this looked like a good one for me.

 

About The Challenge:

How many pages can you read this year?

This challenge isn’t about how many books you read but rather how many pages. After all, it isn’t fair that I might read 4 titles and another might read 2 titles but we’ve read the same number of pages!

November 2018 Book Haul

 

I honestly thought my haul for November would be so much smaller.  But I forgot about all the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales.  Plus, Barnes & Noble had a buy 2 get 1 free sale for graphic novels.  I got a lot of those (but my husband reads them, too).

 

I’ll start with digital books first.
