Taking Stock - March

Total Posts: 29
Total Books Read this Month: 36
Total Books Read this Year: 110

Audio Books: 8/ 17 ytd
Debut Author: 2/ 4 ytd
Mount TBR Challenge: 4/ 9 ytd

Picture Books: 13/ 28 ytd

The Good: According to Goodreads, I continue to be right on track for my 2013 Reading Challenge. I coincidentally opened and closed my month with a Burleigh biography! I increased the time I spend reading with my ears. I got a couple of debuts under my belt, albeit picture book debuts, but they were both fantastic!

The Bad: I read 36 but reviewed only 8. A few days ago, I learned that my go-to children's indie book store is closing. So sad but the good news is that the owner will be able to continue to provide books to the schools they supply! Yay! Mary has hand-sold so many winners to me over the years. I'm glad she'll still be available to me.
