April 2013 Reading Wrap-Up

In April I read a total of 14 books, 9 of which were print/ebooks and 5 of which were audio. This ended up being a total of about 2800 pages and 54 hours of audio. This is a bit disappointing after the old days of getting to 15 or 16 print/ebooks and 5 or 6 audios, but it does mean that I’m now keeping up with my new posting schedule, so if I can keep this up and this schedule allows me enough time to do my job then the blog is in a good place. I would really hate to have to cut back to only 2 total reviews per week, instead of the three (two print and an audio) I’m doing now.  How was your month?

Pick of the Month:
