Adding it up: My Reading in April

Month: Apr 2014.  So why am I posting this only now, half-way through May?  This is how it often goes for me.  I get really involved with something for a few months, then it fades out because something else takes over my time and energy.  In April, the take-over things were writing and photography.  There was also busy-ness at work, and a problem with my internet connection, which didn’t help.  Let me see if I can play catch-up.

Books completed this month: 2 (2 ebooks).  I did read a few other books, but since I haven’t reviewed them, I’m not counting them as completed.
Books completed year to date: 22 (15 ebooks; 3 hard copy; 2 audio; 1 part hard copy, part ebook; 1 pdf download)

Abandoned this month: nothing (except blogging!)
Abandoned year to date: 2 books; 1 short story

Short stories completed this month: 1 (again, I read more than this, but have to play catch-up with reviews).
Short stories completed year to date: 15

Best read this month: The Glimpses of the Moon (Edith Wharton)
