May sucked donkey balls.

I can’t believe I only read 3 books in May. THREE. BOOKS. Okay, four. But The Mistake I Made by Paula Daly was a re-read. So I don’t think it counts. Certainly not towards my Goodreads Challenge – where I’m sorely lagging behind by 10. I mentioned yesterday that I made like a sloth this month and completely disappeared for a week. I just…I don’t know. I was feeling maudlin and didn’t really feel like doing anything. Needless to say, I’m scared to see what my TBR Differential is like in May.

Slow January

DSC00609


The other day, as I was doing my very best to be unproductive, I stumbled upon an article over at Book Riot asking their readers what was in their Inbox/Outbox for the week. I thought it’s a great alternative to putting someone’s reading month in perspective. So I decided to adapt this way of recapping  my month of January.

As you can see, it had been a slow reading month for me. I only read 10 books in total. As I’ve mentioned in my past posts, January got a tad too busy in my mortal world. I neglected most of the books on my reading pile and had weeks when I could barely write a post for the coming week. I was still relatively active, though.

TBR PILE DIFFERENTIAL: +5

Ideally, I should have more books in my OUTBOX than in my INBOX. So any time that number is higher, it spells doom for my TBR pile. Next month, I’m aiming for a negative differential.

How was your January? Did you get all the books you wanted to get for the month?
