Month in Review: March 2011

March started out in the 70s and is ending in the 50s ~ What's up with that??? We did have a wonderful reprieve in Orlando last week, which was nice. We had a blast at Disney. It was definitely the highlight of the month. Here's a recap of what I read and reviewed this month.

Books Read in March: 4
I read a total of four books in March. Three were adult books and one was a children's book.
Zero Day by Mark Russinovich
My Stroke of Insight by Jill Bolte Taylor
Spinning by Michael Baron
Fifo "50 States" by Hayley Rose

Reviews Written: 6
This month, I wrote a lot of reviews. First, I reviewed two books I had read in February:
Final Vector by Alan Leverone
Elephant Talk by Ann Downer

I also wrote reviews of all of the books I read in March. You can click on the links above to read them.


Author Interview: 1
I also conducted one author interview in March, with author Michael Baron. So far, I seem to be interviewing an author each month. I'm hoping to keep up this trend.

This month, I read 2 e-books on my Nook. That brings me to a total of 8 for the year. I need to read a total of 12 e-books in 2011 for this challenge, so I'm doing well.

None, but I did start a book by Ron Rash so I should have at least one to list here for April!

This month, I read books that took place in two different states, but one was a state I had already checked off my list. Here's where the books I read in March took place:
Massachusetts
New York (2)
Whole USA

That brings me to 9 out of 50 states covered, plus 3 additional countries. Here's my updated map:

  1. Congrats on your monthly progress! It must be the week off for spring break but my March reading progress was much better than my February.

  4. Wow, good for you for keeping up with your reviews! I always seem to be running behind (in that and everything else!). I suppose some day the kids will be gone and I will have plenty of time and won't know what to do with it all - lol.

    Thanks for reminding me I need to do my own March summary. How on earth did we get to April so fast??
