Sam (woohoobooks) Thank you so much, you too!!

Sam (woohoobooks) January Update
- 15 books read; 14 counted for Everest.
- 2 books acquired; 1 was read in January
- TBR as of January 1: 302
- TBR as of January 31: 289

Even with a "restricted" TBR, I had a fantastic reading month! I enjoyed every book I read and I'm not feeling that itch to go crazy at the library yet. Ready for February!

Sam (woohoobooks) February Update
- 10 books read; 1 DNF; 11 counted for Everest
- 4 books acquired thanks to my mom
- TBR as of February 1: 289
- TBR as of February 28: 282

A slower reading month with a couple of mediocre/not for me books that slumped me a bit in the beginning. The end of the month really stepped it up though, and I'm feeling better about setting books aside that I know just aren't for me. On to March!

Sam (woohoobooks) March Update
- 9 books read; 9 counted for Everest
- 0 books acquired
- TBR as of March 1: 282
- TBR as of March 31: 249

Life happened in March and I read very little. I did manage 9 books toward the peak but it was thanks to some short stuff at the end. I was feeling a bit restless with my reading and did a nice unhaul of some TBR books so my overall number went down which was a satisfying feeling. Taking reading a bit slower in April but I have a lot of different books on the go which is exactly what I need to right now.
