Month In Review: April 2020

April, April, what to say about you? I’ve been going stir crazy after over six weeks of obligatory quarantine and not being able to go outside unless it’s in our garden… (Before you ask: we have a country wide lockdown in Argentina and nobody is allowed to go outside for exercise or social visits; only for shopping for essentials between 7AM and 5PM and those people with essential jobs.

The bookish numbers:

  • Number of books read in April: 24
  • Total number of books read in 2020: 83
  • Total number of pages read in April: 7.644
  • Total number of pages read in 2020: 27.432

I managed to read a lot in April, probably partly thanks to the OWLs Magical Readathon, but I also had quite a few short and quick reads… But even though I did find a new 5 star read, as a whole I haven’t been all that lucky with my reading choices. No less than 10 titles were 3 star or below and that even includes a DNF… And only 4 books received an (almost) perfect rating. Fingers crossed May will bring me more luck!
