    March Reads

    I still feel like I’m not reading as much as I’d like. Although it’s also true that I abandoned one book and have two paperbacks and an audiobook that I started but have yet to finish.

I always thought that with the number of trips away it would involve I wouldn’t manage all 40 tasks. But that it was good to have aims and I could probably manage a fair number. With the current restrictions I definitely won’t manage most of them because even the one day trips are out of reach. I might write a new “pandemic edition” 40 before 40 list to start after I turn 39, I need to have a think…
