Oh, hey. I had a fully successful month, with regards to the #getaholdofyourshelf challenge, which was kind of nice.
May’s challenge was to read the shortest book, so I read several. I pulled three short books and added a short book that I’d already partially read. And, I finished all of them!
- Pulled: Stranger, Baby, Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions, and A Whole Life. Also, The Children’s Home, which I started in March.
- Read: All of the above. Woohoo!
For June, my challenge is twofold because I finally picked one of my audiobook challenges, which means that I have to listen to one of my Audible audiobooks that I’ve been ignoring. The overall challenge is book with the best title.
- Pulled: The Slow Waltz of Turtles and The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet
- Audiobook pick: Lullabies for Little Criminals (I decided to use the “best title” criteria for my audiobook, too, even though I have other books that have lingered in Audible much longer)
I started Lullabies for Little Criminals on my way to work on the 1st and I’m loving it. I probably won’t start the others until a little later in the month as I just got a mass dump of very popular books from the library (I won’t be able to renew them and returning them un-read will mean having to wait weeks before I can get them again). While I want to read them both, I’m mostly excited for The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet.
