March Round-Up

Right. I can't believe that tomorrow it will already be April. Spring is here and it's time to do a round-up of March and the first quarter of 2008. Maybe this will convince me that signing up for every challenge I see is not a good plan! :-)

What I read in March:
1. The Earth, My Butt and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler (5/5)
2. Animal Farm by George Orwell (5/5)
3. Girls Under Pressure by Jacqueline Wilson (5/5)
4. The Memory Keeper's Daughter (5/5)
5. Gossip Girl by Cecily Von Ziegesar - Audiobook (2/5)
6. The Year 1000 by Robert Lacey and Danny Danziger (4.5/5)
7. Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett (4.5/5)
8. Catch-22 by Joseph Heller (4/5)
9. Undead and Unwed by MaryJanice Davidson (4/5)
10. The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark (4/5)
11. Chloe by Freya North (4/5)

11 books, I can't believe it! :-)

And here's how I'm doing with all my challenges:

100+ Reading Challenge - 19/100 read
A-Z Challenge - 15/52
888 Challenge - 9/56
Decades Challenge - 3/8
Eponymous Challenge - 3/4
Numbers Challenge - 2/5
Chunkster Challenge - 1/4
Banned Books Challenge - 2/6
Man Booker Challenge - 0/6
Title Master Reading Challenge - 0/4
Mythopoeic Challenge - 1/7
Novella Challenge - 5/6

Hmmm... not too bad, but some of them haven't been getting any attention at all! Must be rectified...

There are some new challenges starting tomorrow too, but I overlap books so I still hope to manage! :-)

Oh yes, and there are the reading projects too...
For the 1001 Books You Must Read Befor You Die project, I read 4 books in the first quarter of this year. For my Rory's Book Club project, I don't think I read any. And I only just started my trip Around the World in Books.

It looks like March went pretty darn well!

I just looked at your cooking blog, too. I'm going to have to check that more often. It looks like there are at least a couple of really great recipes out there.

Yep, I love cooking and would really like to develop my other blog... thanks for checking it out!

And yes, March did go well, I'm pleased!

Wow, that is a LOT of reading commitments! I don't know if I could even keep up with one, between work and laundry and dishes and vacuuming and...
