March has been dragging on, teasing us with some days in the 70s, or even a couple of hours, to plummet back in the 30s and 40s. And lately a lot of run. So if you can’t go hiking because it’s too wet, what else can you do? Read!
Here is what I read in March.
A low total of pages, mostly due to the fact that actually everyday I’m reading a few pages of 4 books. Two of them are based on the calendar, so I won’t be down with them until end of 2017. So I will only count them next December.
9 books: 8 in print = with 1,738 pages, that is: 56 pages/day
+ 1 audiobook
= with 10H09, that is: 19 mn/day
over 4,110 subscribers
over 132,600 hits
Plans for March
Still persevering with and enjoying thoroughly The Complete of Sherlock Holmes on audio, with Simon Prebble as the narrator
With my current plan of focusing on my TBR and being more strict at accepting books for reviews, I am discovering an advantage I had not thought about originally at the beginning of the year. I can combine flexibility with other events going on in the blogosphere. That’s how I ended up reading La nuit sacrée in March: it had been on my TBR for a while, and a great opportunity came up to read it in March, as Travel The World In Books was focusing on North African authors.
Coincidence? Travel the World With Books (#TTWIB) decided to focus on North African authors this month, and Morocco happened to be the country featured at the Paris Book Fair this year. Great opportunity to read a Moroccan novelist, with this little book found on my shelf: La Nuit sacrée, which received the Prix Goncourt in 1987.
Coïncidence? Le groupe de Travel the World With Books (#TTWIB) a choisi de se concentrer sur les auteurs nord-africains, et le Maroc était le pays à l’honneur au Salon du Livre de Paris cette année. Bonne occasion à saisir pour lire un romancier marocain, avec ce petit livre trouvé sur mon étagère : La Nuit sacrée qui reçut le Prix Goncourt en 1987.
