*Platypire Read-A-Thon* March Results

March is over (like way over but I was really trying to get all my March book reviews posted before doing this (I still failed, but if I had posted this on March 31st, I would have had more books with reviews to come than books with reviews posted). I feel I did a fairly decent job of sticking to my list this month, and the books that stepped away from it were either proofreading jobs or children's books (and then my book club book which we had apparently not chosen yet at the beginning of the month). I consider sticking mostly to my list to be progress though. Without further ado, here are my results.

So I only read 12 books this month, not my usual 13, but I had several proofreading jobs in there which as I've mentioned before do take a little bit more time than just straight reading. Those jobs are also the reason why I got so behind on my review writing because I was getting most of them back to back. Not that I'm complaining about being busy with work, because that's awesome. Hopefully next month I will do better. - Katie
