March is usually one of my slower months of reading, but this year… I read a lot more. Granted, we’ve all been at home since about the middle of the month, which leaves a lot of extra time for reading. Oddly though, I feel like I got more reading done before I started working from home. However, I have a feeling April will be pretty busy with reading in my spare time, partially because of the Magical Readathon, but also because I have two books I’ll be carrying over into the month.
I also bought quite a lot of books this month. I’d give you all the grimace emoji, but part of it was in anticipation of being stuck inside and not being able to go to bookstores again for a while. Though the last three on that list are ones that I got on an ebook sale because… why not?

I also have no regrets with how many books I purchased because for one thing, I used up the rest of my Christmas gift cards, and secondly the money I did spend I used to support an indie bookstore a few weeks before they had to close due to the pandemic. I already know the first thing I’m doing when this virus is no longer a problem… bookstores!
