Stephanie (quiltsrme) | 119 comments I added the Deadwood series early because I already owned it and I'm trying to concentrated on audiobooks that I already owned this year. I think I also have book 2, but beyond that, not sure. Same thing with The Royal Spyness series.

Stephanie (quiltsrme) | 119 comments It's almost midMarch. I'm getting along with my series books although I started a couple of new ones this year. Just finished reading the most recently published book in two completed series, so I'm caught up there. I'm alternating between a couple of series. I expect that I will finish the Diane Mott Davidson series soon. I'm finished book 10 with 7 I think left. I also have one more book in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Both are easy to listen to while I work on Ebaying a bunch of stuff for my Mom.

Stephanie (quiltsrme) | 119 comments Slow March and April on series. I've decided to drop book-of-the-month readings for the rest of the year (unless I already have the book) because it's distracting me from my goals of finishing series AND completing my embarrassingly high number of purchased TBRs.

I think my primary series will be the easy to listen to. I spend a lot of time shlepping family members to appointments & ER, waiting while cars are fixed and occasionally, while on errands using an in-ear speaker. Murder She Wrote is my take-a-long series for ebook. They don't take very long to read and are easy to get back to with chronic interruption. Love the series so far. :)

Nyssa | 2023 comments Sometimes it's easy to forget that these challenges are supposed to be fun, not work. :) Your changes sound like they will be for the best for you as far as time and enjoyment.
I wish you the best of luck going forward!!

Stephanie (quiltsrme) | 119 comments Since I last posted, I have mostly read and listened to random books, which helped a lot. I did make headway in 3 series - Goldy Shulz (Diane Mott Davidson), Murder she Wrote (Jessica Fletcher/Donald Bain) and Discworld (Terry Pratchett). I only have 3 more books left in the Goldy Shulz culinary mystery series, so that's going along well. I have many books to do on the other two series.

I will be getting more needlework going after the 1st of the year which gives me more time with audiobooks. That's going to be hard at first since tomorrow, I'm going to start on a marathon of Downton Abbey since the final season starts Jan. 3 and I didn't even see all of last season! Just for the fun of it, I plan to make a different cheesecake every episode starting with a traditional New York cheesecake. Why cheesecake? Diabetes. Only low carb thing I can think of.
