March Tally

Just wanted to start my post with a picture of where I'd LIKE to be right now instead of at work. That's the Jefferson memorial in Washington D.C. during the Cherry Blossom Festival which just happens to be going on this week. Would you believe I've lived in the area for 4 years now and still have not been to D. C. for the Cherry Blossom Festival yet?

Anyway, my total books read this month is 67. That number includes manga. Without manga, my book total is 26. Not bad at all, I think. I'm not sure which book was my favorite, but I'll think about it today and try to remember to let ya'll know tonight.

Happy April Fool's, everyone!

I've been to the Cherry Blossom Fest and it's great! I used to live right outside DC and it was always gorgeous this time of year. :) Hope you enjoy the sunny days!

My God, I love the picture of cherry blossom and am hoping that I'll get the chance to see it live one day! You surely have an excellent reading month over there. I don't think I'll ever be able to go for 26 actual books per month! That was amazing and hope that this month will be even better for you =)

I'm so impressed by your reading total-can't wait to hear which was your favorite!

And thank you for sharing that picture; I'm on the West Coast and I've never been to the Cherry Blossom Festival. They're gorgeous though!

Stephanie said...

I am amazed at how many books you managed to read. That's wonderful! I hope April will bring you another amazing reading month.

I have to see if I can find The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen graphic novel. I love the movie and the individual stories behind the characters!

My fav this month from my list was Secrets of Eden. When you asked, I had to think about it though. Sometimes I read so much that I forget to look back and reflect on them!

Wow Hannah, you really rock in the reading department. Some of your books I have read. Absolutely love True Confession of a Part-Time Indian, and Patterson series with Max is one of my favs. I am looking forward to getting Fang this weekend. Hope April is as great a month as March was.

Connie said...

Wow! You are a prolific reader. I am so impressed!

I have to admit I hate the cherry blossom fest a little, because it snarls traffic up even worse than usual! Shore is purty, though.

WOW that's amazing, you read almost a book a day. I love that picture you put up, it's beautiful! Have a great April and thanks for hooking up on my blog.
