April astounded me this year. Part of that came because of some real bizarre weather we had in the Northeast. One week we had temps in the 90s, the next it was pouring and in the 50s. And we even had a couple of frost advisories and a freeze warning as well. Certainly not the typical weather for this month.
What also astounded me was the number of books I completed this past month. April turned into my most productive reading month, with 18 books completed. This was a significant jump from March’s 13, and puts me well ahead of pace for completing my 100 books in 366 days. Also surprising is the number of books I actually liked a lot this month.
Asides from the book fest, I also joined the Sword & Laser community of Goodreads.com, mostly after seeing the video version of their podcast on Youtube’s Geek & Sundry channel. I might even make a stab at reading their May book of the month just to join in the discussion.
