Monthly Reflections (#4)


Photobucket

Monthly Reflections, where we take the time to reflect on the previous month.

My goals for April were...


Read 9 books including:
1-2 eBooks
A book from my TBR pile
A book starting with the letter "N" or "E" (I'm trying to get "Melanie" and I'm two "E's" and one "N" away!)

In April, I... 


Read 9 books!!
 1 eBook (Yours Truly)
 Read a book starting with the letter "N" (N.H.I. No Humans Involved)

I participated in a 24 Hour Read-a-thon (didn't do that well):

24 Hour Read-a-Thon
Update 1
Update 2
Update 3

April reading challenge:

A: Prowl by Amber Garza
P: Beckon by Tom Pawlik
R: The Last Plea Bargain by Randy Singer
I: 
L: Hearts That Survive A Novel of the Titanic by Yvonne Lehman

I didn't complete this challenge... all I needed was an "I". I'm currently reading "Illusion" by Frank Peretti, but I didn't finish it in time for this challenge (oh well).

Looking ahead:


Here is what I hope to accomplish in May...

Read 10 books
Read at least 1 eBook
Read two "Just for Fun" books (one being Nightmare by Robin Parrish)
Read a book starting with the letter "E"

May seems like it will be a busy month for this blog (I have a lot of things planned!) and I hope that I will find the time to read at least 10 books. :D


Now it's your turn! What did you accomplish in April, what do you hope to accomplish in May?
