I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.
Clearing my slate before the new Kill Your Darlings game and the Flat Book Society's March read begins.
I've read 19 books this month. Real life in February was a cranky bastard and I just didn't have the luxury of time I usually do. Still, 19 is a much higher number than I expected and I'm very satisfied, all things considered.
A few stats:
3 Five star reads
4 Four star reads
1 1.5 star read; my lowest rating of the month.
13 books by women
6 books by men
In an effort to curb my TBR piles this year, I'm only allowing myself to buy half as many books as I read in the previous month. If I buy less than the month's budget, I can carry over the balance.
February cumulative balance: 19
Books bought in February: 13
Carry over: 6
March budget: 9
Total book budget for March: 15
In truth, I thought I'd have blown this by now; it helps that I accidentally missed the library sale last month. Something tells me I won't do so well when the next one comes around.
