We’re through the first quarter of the year, fellow readers. Are you a quarter of the way through your TBR Challenge?
I’m not, but I’m starting to gain some ground. I’ve taken to listening to audio books while I’m playing Solitaire or crocheting something easy (I only started a few months ago, so I don’t make things with elaborate patterns). That’s gotten me through three audio books that have been waiting patiently for a couple of years for my attention: The Clockwise Man (a Doctor Who novel), and the first two installments of Cressida Cowell’s How To Train Your Dragon series (which are nothing like the movies, but read beautifully by David Tennant).
That makes me just 1/12 of the way to my target of 36 books this year, but it’s progress. And I can listen to audio books even when my chronic fatigue rears its ugly head, so that’s a plus. Here’s to a book-filled April!

Hi Cora – Way to multi task! I read while on the recumbent bike at the gym! I have 41 books read and am in the middle of 3 books, that I could potentially finish in the next 2 days! I have been doing mostly rereads still, but this year I am counting them toward my goal. It is reading, after all! I am looking forward to HRR in Sept, so I will be reading as much as I can by the authors who will be there. A lot of them are books I actually own & haven’t gotten too yet. Happy Easter!
How do you read on the recumbent bike? That’s awesome! Happy Easter to you, too, Sharlene!
It’s a stationary bike & the seat has a back on it. The pedals are slightly out, instead of under you, so it’s comfortable.
I can’t read while I exercise unless it’s an audio book, so I’m always a little jealous of people who can!
