Two books wrapped up in March now, both in fairly short spaces of time and I seem to have at least partially shaken my reading slump. So much catching up to do now, though! It was much nicer being so ahead of the game last year!

Well March wound up not being a total write off but I'm still so behind and gaining no ground. Need to get better at factoring reading into my routine this month if I stand a chance of completing my challenge this year!

Need to update mine, but it's been such a slow year so far. Really need to step it up for April.

And another book down bringing my total to 8.

Still 5 behind, though!

Running behind last year, here, which is disappointing. Thought I'd get way more reading into the start of the year.

Says you, a casual 10 books ahead of me! But yeah, I'm crazily far behind where I was this time last year.

8 to last year's 23/24.

Another, admittedly very short one bites the dust.

Right. I finally finished a book. Took me an embarrassingly long time to finish it. 7 or so books behind, plus another 4 needed to have a successful April.

Let's see how this month goes...

You can do it, Georgie!

I’m trying to put aside half an hour each morning for reading but it’s sort of gone out the window will real life stuff these past few days. Still, making steady progress through book 10 and after this anything I read this month is helping me catch up.

Book 11 bites the dust but still 4 books behind schedule.

Hoping I can get that down to 2 or 3 before the end of this month.

Staring at my 16 books for April last year and knowing that I'm getting nowhere near this time around. Seem to have picked up some speed again though, which is something.

Not really an update, but every time I edit my list I feel like I set myself up to fail with its title :xeyes:

Updated. Six books from catching last year's total for the end of May. There may be hope for me yet.

Still 5 books behind schedule and so far behind last year that it's not worth thinking about!

Updated. Feel like I've been reading the Dresden Files for years now.

Two books for June. Pretty badly behind target. Around 8 books a month needed to catch up and complete the challenge at this point....yeah. Let's see what I can do!
