APRIL 2022 WRAP-UP
April was a super busy month, tons of teaching hours and a lot of time in Church (Great Lent, Great Week, Pascha), which often would leave me very tired for my usual evening reading hours.
So this is the most pathetic month. I can’t even recall a month where I would have read so few pages… Though at least I have almost reviewed them all!
But my first three months were full of books, so I’m still 8 books ahead of schedule (39% done) to read 120 books this year.
I note that of the 7 books I read 3 are in French and 3 were translated from other languages. Quite characteristic.
I wasn’t able to participate in memes, but I hope to be restarting this coming week.
📚 Here is what I read in April:
4 in print
= with 823 pages, a daily average of 27 pages/day
3 in audio
= 24H30, a daily average of 49 minutes
5 in mystery:
- Death Going Down, by Maria Angelica Bosco – For the #1954Club
- Code Lupin, by Michel Bussi – French audiobook
- Vanda, by Marion Brunet – received for review
- Code 612: Qui a tué le Petit Prince ?, by Michel Bussi – French audiobook
- The Man in the Queue, by Josephine Tey – my Spin for The Classics Club
1 in science-fiction:
- Nouvelle Babel, by Michel Bussi – French audiobook
1 in literary fiction:
- Moshi Moshi, by Banana Yoshimoto
Yes, you read that right, 3 audiobooks by Michel Bussi!
