This time last month I set myself the target of reading three books in April (relatively low, since deadlines were and are fast approaching) but I managed to read six, albeit including two short non-fiction books, which I am very happy with! Better still, I thoroughly enjoyed four of the six.
This month is decision time! I have my three finals and my dissertation is due, however at the very latest, I will be finished on May 29th so I’ll have a couple of days at the end of the month to read to my heart’s content. As a result, I’m going to aim for four books read in May.
Twenty-four down, twenty-six to go. (Twenty-five read)
