Clearing my slate before the new Kill Your Darlings game and the Flat Book Society's March read begins.
I've read 19 books this month. Real life in February was a cranky bastard and I just didn't have the luxury of time I usually do. Still, 19 is a much higher number than I expected and I'm very satisfied, all things considered.
A few stats:
3 Five star reads
4 Four star reads
1 1.5 star read; my lowest rating of the month.
13 books by women
6 books by men
In an effort to curb my TBR piles this year, I'm only allowing myself to buy half as many books as I read in the previous month. If I buy less than the month's budget, I can carry over the balance.
February cumulative balance: 19
Books bought in February: 13
Carry over: 6
March budget: 9
Total book budget for March: 15
In truth, I thought I'd have blown this by now; it helps that I accidentally missed the library sale last month. Something tells me I won't do so well when the next one comes around.
