March Reads

I had a REALLY good reading month in March! I finished 20 books. This puts my 2013 total at 36 books so far toward a goal of 100. I read a total of 4,379 pages and listened to 33.74 hours of audiobooks in March. That seems like a lot, but remember that we don't have cable, and I do a lot of reading while my husband is working nights or away at drill for several days a month. Plus this month I used an Amazon gift card toward a Kindle Paperwhite, and I think my fascination with my new gadget helped me get much more reading done!
Of the books I read, 6 counted for the genre challenge. I didn't read any presidential biographies, but I am starting one on Thomas Jefferson for April. Other informal goals I've been working on are reducing my pile of owned books that I need to read and catching up on favorite series.
