  1. Hmm, my favorite book for March… I should really consider reading something this year.

  2. I only read three books last month…in order of liking, they were The Beauty of Humanity Movement, Jane Eyre, and Ulysses. Actually, the word like doesn’t even belong in the same sentence as Ulysses.

  3. That’s certainly a lot of reading! Yay! I would love to have a month like that! Maybe I should seriously work towards it!

  4. Wow! That list is nuts! Great job on reading so much! I have been a slacker lately and pretty much only read Snow Flower and the Secret Fan in March. It was okay.

  5. Wow! That’s an incredible month! You sound a lot like me though, recently I just haven’t been feeling the reviewing vibe or whatever you want to call it. I’ve just wanted to relax and read. 🙂

  6. LOL, You keep yourself busy watching movies and telling me which ones to stay away from.

  7. My hat is off to you for Ulysses. I have never been able to stomach it. Did date a guy in high school with that name though; does that count?

  8. Relax and read, that sounds like a good plan.

  9. The funny thing is that I didn’t work at it. I think that I just escaped into it, reading does that:)

  10. You are allowed to slack, so much exciting stuff on your plate!

  11. I love that you included the publish year in your list. I read 2-3 books a month so I’m floored with your success – fantastic job!

    Favorite read in March: The Mistress of Nothing

  12. Thanks Mari! Including the year published helps me make sure that I am not always reading just new books. There are so many great books out there, collecting dust, just begging to be brought into the sun.
