March. What can I say about March that does not include the words surreal and crap?

I still managed to read 20 books, but those also included a lot of comfort reads and re-reads, and a few plays in my Will’s World (Shakespeare) project.

Interestingly, I’ve not managed to listen to as many audiobooks as I expected while working from home, but then work has been crazy because people have apparently lost their minds.

At the same time, March just highlighted once more how fantastic it is to have fellow readers who are also up for comfort reads, buddy reads, pet pictures, food pictures, art pictures, and all sort other lovely reminders that the month has also had some highlights.

I still have not swapped any books for “book jokers” (see explanation at the end of the post), so my current 2020 Mt. TBR shelves look like this:

End of March Mt. TBR:

Rules – same as previously – are that I picked a stack of physical books off my shelves at home which I would try to read over the course of the year. If I pick another (yet unread) physical book off my shelves, I get to take one off the Mt. TBR shelves and put it on the regular shelf – as a substitute. In a change from previous years, new purchases (physical books only) will not be added to the Mt. TBR shelves – I will track these separately.
