Read Harder – March Progress

I know this post is incredibly late, but it’s crunch time at grad school. Both my school semester and Girl Scouts will be over in two weeks, so things will (thankfully) calm down again.  After taking my scouts camping in June, I won’t have anything school- or scout-related until late August (school) and mid-September (scouts). Counting down to a much needed mental break!

Onward to the post…

March saw a total of 11 books read between the three of us. Sophia managed to hit and pass the halfway mark of the challenge (one of the joys of not having human children; cats don’t count in this capacity to degree kids do). I should hit the halfway mark in April. “Should” being the operative word. I have no clue about my husband. He’s reading, but most of the books are for categories he’s already completed. I will have to get more creative in my book selections for him.

Me 10/24 (3 in Mar)
My Husband 7/24 (2 in Mar)
Sophia 13/24 (6 in Mar) **over halfway through the challenge!**
