Monday’s Minutes

“Monday’s Minutes” is a weekly post in which I track my bookish life.  All book covers are linked to Goodreads unless otherwise noted.

Challenges:

  • Show Your Shelves Some Love: 46 out of 51
  • RIP XI: 2 of 4 books, at least 35 short stories – I’ve been catching up on episodes of Drabblecast, which is a short story podcast dedicated to weird tales.  I highly recommend it.

Total pages read: 381

Total # of books for the year: 64.  Most of my reading was finishing the audiobook of Plain Kate.  Even then, I think I listened to more short story podcasts than anything else.  This week, I’ll be listening to the audiobook of The Perks of Being a Wallflower for Banned Books Week.  I’ve also updated my Banned Books page, so be sure to check that out.
