April 2011 Reading Wrap-Up

I’m changing up the format of my monthly wrap-ups a bit for 2011. Instead of listing everything I read and linking to what has been reviewed, I will first be listing the books reviewed over the last month, and will include unreviewed books below, so you can see what will be coming up!

Wait, it is MAY already? Really? *sigh*

April was a decent month, but nothing spectacular. I finished 15 books, including 2 audio, for about 4100 pages and about 24 hours of audio. All of these numbers are WAY down from my March totals, but I was also sick pretty much all month, and spent a good amount of time playing games on my phone or staring at the computer while watching tv on dvd.
