Yep, lots of books this month. 18 to be precise. Now, 2 of those WERE 22 page comic books, so take that as you may. However, my monthly page count was 6764. Up almost 50% from last month. Page count is definitely going to be my new monthly benchmark. The biggest books were: Shadow’s Edge, Return of the Crimson Guard, Guns of the Dawn and Deadhouse Gates. They ranged from 645 to 868 pages. Now that’s what I’m talking about!
Average Star Rating came in at 3.8, so almost everything this month was a fantastic read. The only “Nah” book was Lord of the Darkwood (The Tale of Shikanoko #3).
Personally, the month was pretty bad. My Friend Amy passing away near the beginning of the month was really hard, but I think that is why I read so much. I was escaping in the only way I knew how. Now that the wake has occurred, I can begin processing it and letting the healing begin.
I was able to figure out a way to work in manga on a regular basis without burning myself out; which is great because last month I had no idea how I was going to accomplish that. I also passed a milestone in organizing my personal review library in Calibre. I’m now under the 1000 review mark. Only 900’ish more entries to polish up and then I just have to stay current. I’m already starting to use it when referencing when I read something in the past or what I thought of Book X.
The cover I’d like to share this month is an alternate for Dune Messiah. I put the cover that matches the asin in the review, but in my Calibre library I’ve got this beauty:
And that wraps up May. Trust you all have a great June and I’ll be stopping by and making comments [appropriate or otherwise] on your posts. Bookstooge out.
