Taking Stock - April 2015

Totally missed posting a "Taking Stock" for March, so my March titles are posted below my April titles. Zoom, zoom, zoom, 2015 is zipping!

Total posts this month: 26
Total books read this month: 30
Total books read this year: 115

Audio: 7/ 18

The Good: Managed a book a day and only 4 books behind on my GR challenge. Reviewing a bit more. Posting a bit more.
