May 2013 – Reading Wrap-Up

Well this was by far the most audiobooks I’ve ever listened to in a month AND the most time ever spent listening. Hellooooo yard work and long walks! I finished 8 audiobooks this month, for a total of over 90 hours of listening. My reading, however, was not so much, as much of my free time was spent outside. I only finished 5 books, for a total of about 1400 pages. The fact that 2 of those books were under 150 pages… yeah. Not so much with the non-work reading. Hopefully I can pick back up at least a little bit, because at this rate, I’m going to run out of scheduled reviews. On the bright side, I can always squeeze in a few extra audiobook reviews.
