March recap and WHERE I Am Reading Update

Wow…. March is here and gone…. seriously?  As awful as March weather has been in Minnesota this year, (in fact it is dreary and snowing right now…. GRRRR), it did go fast.  Thanks goodness I guess.

However – I feel my reading took a dive this month from my previous awesome reading in January and February… here is what I read in March:

LISTEN by Renee Gutteridge

Home Safe by Elizabeth Berg (audio)

The Eyes Of The Heart by Frederick Buechner

The Year Of Pleasures by Elizabeth Berg (audio)

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling – read by Stephen Fry (audio)

1st To Die by James Patterson

Wench by Dolan-Perkins Valdez

Jimmy by Robert Whitlow (audio)

The Postmistress by Sarah Blake

The Handmaid and The Carpenter bu Elizabeth berg (audio)

Well…. I guess if I look at it like this… it doesn’t look like such a poor month, although I feel my contributions the past two weeks have been small.

  1. As much as you post about the activities you are involved in, I’m surprised you have time to read any books at all! 🙂

  2. Congrats Hannah and Cheryl!

    Great reading month! Happy April Reading!

  3. That’s an impressive number of books for the month! Great job!

  4. Your map looks quite interesting! Fun to see it progress. 🙂 And yay! 😀

  5. I started doing this, but then realized that a large majority of my books took place in the UK, and most of the others took place in the “unmappable”: The Underworld, The Planet Rakhat, Narnia, Heaven, etc. Super fun idea, though! 🙂

  6. Good reading month! And you’re all over the map, too….congrats.

  7. Wow, 15 books is a slow month for you?? Holy cow. That’s about double what I can usually read in a month, Sheila – I think you’re doing great!

    And you’re really moving along on Where in the World, too! I’m impressed. I’ve had a recent slew of books without locations!

    Enjoy the weekend –


    • About half of those are audio…. thank goodness 😀 I guess it wasn’t as bad as I thought Sue…. it feels like I have read nothing this past couple of weeks…. posting today made it look better than I thought 😀

  8. You’ve got some wonderful books on that list. I am loving doing the Google Maps!

  9. March is gone but it left its awful weather behind – or was that February? I’m confused.
