March Monthly Summary

Monday, April 5, 2010

March was a great reading month for me. I completed a total of 20 books, similar to last month. I finished my Audio Book Challenge and made a good dent in my 101010 Challenge. I read quite a few great books, including Les Miserable, RENT, Blue Highways, Still Alice and The Help. I hope you all found a few great reads too!
