Either I was feeling generous, or I had a great reading month. Since my RL wasn't as nice as my reading month, we'll go with great reading!
My total for March was 26 books. Moonlight Reader's inspired reading version of the game Clue! (Cluedo to those in the Commonwealth), Kill Your Darlings, certainly helped keep my reading pace up, and as always, worked particularly well at getting the veterans off my TBR stacks.
Of the 25 books, 2 were 5-star reads:
The Case of the Baker Street Irregulars by Anthony Boucher
I Contain Multitudes: The Microbes Within Us and a Grander View of Life by Ed Yong
I had 8 4.5 star reads too:
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs
One Corpse Too Many by Ellis Peters
The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett
Miss Silver Comes to Stay by Patricia Wentworth
Miss Kopp's Midnight Confessions by Amy Stewart
The Moving Toyshop by Edmund Crispin
The House of the Cats: And Other Traditional Tales from Europe by Maggie Pearson
Some stats, gussied up:
My TBR project:
I've set a book buying budget for each month that = 50% of the total books I read the previous month. Any books not bought carry over to the next month.
Last month I bought 11 out of the 15 budgeted, leaving me with 4 to carry over to April. My total books read in March being 25 leaves me with a budget of 12 (I always round down; I figure this way, if I go over one month, there's a small error of margin).
total books I can buy in April: 16
