I finished six books in April. Nothing really blew me away, but the Cat Sebastian was my favorite. It was a #roll100 selection that also became a #bookspin selection.

I also acquired a couple books in connection with indie bookstore day and shuffled a few things into and out of the LFL at the community center.

April #bookspinbingo plans!

Jumped down to 301-320 on my TBR for these selections… I added these in 2014 and, for some reason, I was really interested in reading George Bernard Shaw at the time 🤷🏻‍♀️

At first blush, I‘m not super excited about many of these, but hopefully that means that I‘ll be pleasantly surprised by what I do manage to read 🤞

BarbaraBB Lots of #1001books! 2mo
sarahbellum @BarbaraBB Tell me more about #1001books! 2mo
BarbaraBB They are books from a list called “1001 books to read before you die” that many people are kind of obsessed with 😉. You have a lot of them on your bookspin list! 2mo
See All 7 Comments
sarahbellum @BarbaraBB thanks for the explanation! Now I‘m curious how many I‘ve already read 🤔 2mo
BarbaraBB There you go! That started my obsession 🤣! You can probable find the complete list online somewhere (there used to be an app but it‘s taken offline) 2mo
sarahbellum @BarbaraBB I looked at an online list for the 2018 edition (not sure how accurate it is) and I‘m at 105 😮 2mo
BarbaraBB That is a good start don‘t you think? You can follow the hashtag #1001books on Litsy to find reviews of books from the list you might like! 2mo

My #bookspin list for #bookspinbingo APRIL..

#8 (Waking Gods) could change to the first book (Sleeping Giants) in The Themis Files if I don't finish it before the end of the month...but I should finish it.

@theAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! I really enjoyed Project Hail Mary. 2mo
AUDIOBOOKINGWITHLEAH @TheAromaofBooks That's why I bought it when it went on sale at Audible. Everyone seems to love it! 2mo

Had a pretty good month, enjoyed all my reads this month. We Ride Upon Sticks and Remote Control were both my favorites. But really liked all of them
2 Physical Books
3 EBooks
Had to read Abandoned London on the Netgalley app in my phone.🙄
4 were ARC's/Galleys
I still have to review The Sea of Lost Girls, but it was a good mystery/thriller.

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Eventually I'll get around to We Ride Upon Sticks. It's sitting here in a stack looking at me wondering when it'll be read. Glad to hear you liked it! 13mo
Tera66 @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Its not an easy read, gotta take your time with it. The writing is clever. It's worth the read. I'm not a re-reader, but I'm considering it with this one. Hope you get to it soon, would love to see what you think.😊 13mo

I love doing the monthly wrap ups because then I can see how much I really did read during the month. I thought I finished hardly any books in April, but apparently I did!

I am getting my books together for April's #bookspinbingo ! Feeling kind of pumped for the coming month and all the books on my list!

Copwithabook I loved The Book of Longings and Ocean at the end of the Lane. I‘m most looking forward to We Begin at the End. Great stack! 14mo
FelinesAndFelonies @Copwithabook I was originally put off by the religious association in The Book of Longings. I'm not religious and I don't read book about religion often. I was told to not let that ruin it for me. So I took a chance and bought this one. And I had to search high and low for The Ocean at the End of the Lane. 14mo

Thanks to a late-night finish, I read 13 books in April, 3873 pages. This year still isn‘t up to last year‘s averages, but, well, this year isn‘t last year. I had one DNF, but including that one I scratched 7 off my #bookspin list and am working on May‘s list today.

April stats:
17 books read, 7 fiction, 10 nonfiction.
(My nonfiction reading was disproportionate this month)
Best fiction: #TheOverstory
Best nonfiction: #NothingToEnvy

(Photo is of the rhodie in front of our house. It was knee-high when we moved in 30+ yrs. ago-now above the roof.)

Good month. I finished quite a few carryovers from March, caught up 2 related series, and rounded out the month with some buddy reads and lots of picture books and short reads. Just what I needed, it left me with only 2 to carryover to May and it feels like a bit of a clean slate/fresh start.

readinginthedark You‘ve accomplished so much! And you always make the best collages; how did you do this one? 4y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @readinginthedark The background is from an app called Vanillapen, I just saved the image onto my phone with a screenshot. Then I used another free app called Over to place the covers and text over the background. I got the covers from Goodreads, again a screenshot. So glad you liked it. 4y

Bookmarkie How does this work? 4y
GypsyKat For month long photo challenges like this, you just follow the prompts for each day of the month and take a picture to go with it. Then make sure you tag the person who is hosting (in this case @Jess7 ) and also use the hashtag for the photo challenge. I also tend to hashtag the prompt, but not everyone does. 4y

I don't make specific TBRs, but I do like to direct my reading in some way. So for my #AprilTBR I have decided that half of the books I read will have been written before 1982 (when I was born), and I want to read at least two books from genres I don't usually choose. I'm thinking one western and one romance, any suggestions?
#aprilbookshowers @RealLifeReading

Lindy Western (would also work for "before you were born"): 5y
TheKidUpstairs @Lindy I was thinking of that one, I'll think I'll have to search it out! 5y
