*Platypire Read-A-Thon* April

It's April, which means it's time for me to update my read-a-thon list. I'm mostly caught up on review writing, although I do hope to get completely caught up this month (there may be a few reviews that can't be posted until a later date however, but if I can have them written and ready to go, that will be a good thing.) Because I'm mostly caught up with writing reviews, I'm hoping to get more books read this month than I did in March. We shall see if I succeed.

I'm only adding five new books for my intentions for the month, and like the past few months, my real intentions are to knock out the books that I've already started first (although I've done an abysmal job of that so far.) And three of the five books added are books that I will be reading start to finish no ifs, ands, or buts about it, so there is that. But with any luck at all, my currently reading list will be shorter at the end of the month.

How many books do you think I'll actually finish in April? - Katie 


  1. I think you need to stop reading, catch up on the reviews, bank the ones that aren't listed yet, take a deep breath, then dive back in. You would enjoy reading the new books more with a satisfying sense of completion from being done with the others. Just my suggestion ;)

    1. I am mostly caught up on reviews right now, all things considered. And it doesn't really bother me having a billion and a half books started. I pretend that it helps keep my memory sharp keeping all the different story lines straight. (Also, when I get proofreading jobs in, I have to stop what I'm reading to get to work.) - Katie

  2. I have a very good memory where the written word is concerned, either because I trained it to be that way by reading a dozen books one chapter at a time during summer vacation while I was in middle and high school, or just because that's the way it's wired. I'm not sure which it is, but I have no problem keeping plots straight for several books at a time. - Katie
