I had an awesome reading month in March, and the trend continued in April. I finished 15 books. This puts my 2013 total at 51 books read so far toward my goal of 100. (I may have to up my goal if I keep reading at this pace!) Of the books I read, 4 counted for a genre challenge. I read 2,234 pages and listened to 53.98 hours of audio in April.

In other news, this month my husband and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary and his birthday! Also, I attended a library conference this month and learned about using Zinio for digital magazine lending, using Pinterest for libraries, opening a library technology center with digital creation suites, and using Google Docs/Drive for library statistics and ready reference. I always tend to choose the technology-focused sessions!
How was your April, and what did you read?
