However, I did finish five of the books on the list:
Plus one that wasn't on the list:
Altogether, I read about 2,000 pages, which is pretty good, an average of 500 pages a week.
I also listened to an excellent audio book, beautifully narrated by Joanna David:
It's one of my favorite books and I never get tired of it.
Finally, I've started this audiobook, which will probably take up all of May as well:
Note that this one contains 28 discs, compared to the mere six of the previous one. I'm on disc 7 and it's just wonderful. I think it will be one of my favorite Dickens novels, nearly as good as Bleak House.
So, reading-wise, a good month. I've learned my lesson and I'm not going to plan out any of my May reading, other than books for my reading groups. Two of them were on the list for April, but I realized I didn't want to read them too early, since I tend to forget details when it comes time for the discussion (and I rarely take notes). That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!
Bloggers, do you plan ahead or just choose books on a whim? Or a combination of the two?
