May stats

I never posted my reading stats for April, mostly because I didn’t read more than two books that month, so I didn’t feel like there was a point to it. In May, however, my lust for reading came back with a vengeance. The monthly total for May ended up forty books, and I don’t know about you, but I think that’s quite a lot of them. True, May was also a month for YA and kiddie lit, which meant that a lot of those forty books were quite short, but all the same! It’s a personal record.

I have all of June off (actually, that’s not quite true—I go back to work on the 30th), which is going to leave me with a ton of time for reading. In fact, I went to the library today and picked up fourteen books (seven of which I have now finished) for some summer reading, and I’ve got a parcel of twelve books due to arrive in the post sometime next week. Not to mention all the books already on my TBR shelves, of course.

    Congrats on such a good month! And I love your redecorating, though I’m not quite sure when it happened (the bad side of google reader)….just to let you know, though, in internet explorer your sidebar is showing up underneath your posts.

    It was a little while back. I forget exactly when myself. Memory like a sieve and so on.

    Internet Explorer never agrees with me. I’m not sure what it is that’s causing it, though. If I’d coded the entire theme myself, I’d find it easier to fix, but I’m using a ready-made one, so I honestly have no clue where to start poking. Maybe I’ll change to another theme that doesn’t have that issue.
