April in a Nutshell

I apologize for be absent lately, but we moved this week and needless to say things have been very hectic these last few weeks, and will probably remain so for another week at least. Our move went smoothly, and we LOVE our new place (the pets are still adjusting :)) We are thrilled to be close to family again, but I am sure that will cut into my reading time a bit (well worth it though).

April was a good month for me (except for the last week). I liked most of the (12) books that I read in April. I visited many wonderful new places and a few familiar places too. I visited India and England. I also saw some more of the United States: Idaho, New York, Wyoming, New Mexico, Washington, DC, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Michigan.

How did you enjoy your month?


  1. Moving is stressful, especially while you're still unpacking and trying to find things, but being near family is the best!!
    You've had a great month even with the move. Are you still in New England?

  2. Your new home is beautiful! And it's right on the sea!!! Is your room in one of the towers?!? ;) Glad to read that your move went well. I hope you all are happy there.

    What book took you to Michigan? I may have known at one time, but it has escaped me at the moment. :)

    BTW - I did get a copy of The Weight of Heaven and I'm reading it now. So far, so good.

  3. I enjoyed my month. My books are listed on my blog. You did read some good books.

  4. You are doing so great this year!!

  5. Sounds like you had a great month book-wise even with the move. Hope everything settles down soon and you can relax.
