A couple of the books on my list were only finished because they had to go back to the library. I've had a few library books that I've renewed 5 times before returning (5 is the maximum number allowed...so 15 weeks).

@Platespinner I did, although I'm still reading a few of the books. I can't wait to start new books this month.

Did you like Mr.Mercedes? I enjoyed the book and I have read also the following of Detective Hodges saga.

It was very well written, but I don't know if I'll read the others in the saga. Some of the parts written from the perspective of Brady really bothered me, I don't know that I want to know whats going on inside the head of someone that twisted.

@Platespinner In this case skip the last one, it's pretty weird and scary.

My total was 9 for the month. The numbers on my discussion represent the count for the year. Jane Eyre is one of my all time favourites--which is a bit ironic since I vehemently disliked it when I read it as a teenager. The rest were all good but not necessarily outstanding.

I'm still reading that book by Norman Vincent Peele that I wrote about here. I want to read that Complete Idiot's Guide to selling on Etsy! I have an ebook that someone sent me about selling on Etsy on my Kindle app....I need to revisit that one too and put the tips into practice.

I'm planning to get an Etsy shop set up by the end of April...unfortunately it seems I have time to sew, or I have time to do the necessary legwork to set up my shop, finding the time to do both is proving to be a bit of a challenge.

Good lord you have a lot of time on your hands to be able to read so much!

Numbers 19, 20, 23, 24 were audiobooks that I listened to while working on other things. Numbers 21 and 25 are books that I read with my daughter...and have been working on since the first of the year. Numbers 18 and 23 were library books that I've been working on for a few months, reading a bit here and there as I've been waiting in the car for various children. Number 17 was my truly indulgent book since I had to finish it in 4 weeks. Most months my list is primarily audiobooks.

@Platespinner Good idea the audio books. It is too early in the morning for my commute to listen and then at the end of the day I am too stressed to pay attention. I have tried that so resort to listening to music instead!

@garymarsh6 I do most of my listening while doing yard work or sewing, or while driving down long, boring stretches of highway. No commute for me at the moment, though that may well change in the next couple of years as my last student graduates.

@UncleJoe It would probably help if they were printed in ordinary English, rather than pharmacese.

I find myself spending less time on social media as the weather warms and there are more things to do outside.

@Platespinner to me its the same thing as coming on here or other chatsites. And texting really. But I'm not constantly on either. Just when bored or have something to say.

The Glass Castle, The Quest For The Cures...CONTINUES, The Truth About Cancer (2nd time reading) and a ton of other research books too boring for most to bother mentioning.
