Comments:

Obviously a lot of audiobooks!  I am a convert.  Since I have roughly an hour of walking commute time to work every day I can get a lot of reading done, so that is where the majority of my reading has occurred and will for the foreseeable future until I learn to manage my time outside of work better and have to start biking to work.  However, considering the changes in my life the past month and a half, I consider this a great amount of books read!

I’m also well ahead of my semi-randomly picked Goodreads goal, which implies I can up it to another semi-randomly picked goal, however, I predict based on past experience a lull in reading starting in about a month, so I will wait for now. 

The books I read this round were good, as evidenced by the decent ratings and average, but nothing really amazed me of blew me away.  I hope the next group of books will have some of those.

Finally, I ‘read’ one of the unread books on my self, though I did it by audiobook not reading the physical book I own….  Since I have also bought another book I have not read and discovered a few others when moving that I didn’t want donate, my reading goal to reduce the number of unread books on my self by half of the starting number at the beginning of the year (aka have max of 6 unread books on my shelf by the end of 2017) is going quite terribly.  However, I have a hold on the audiobook for another book on my shelf for commute reading and once I finish off the last library book I have had forever and want to read, there is another I want to immediately start on my shelf.  After that my plan gets a little fuzzy…

What’s next:

I think I answered this nicely, if rather non-specifically.  So as a shameless plug, you can find out my what’s next if you follow or friend my on Goodreads!  Link is in my about page.
