What I Read in April


April was the best month of the year for many things: weather (sunny and mild for a large portion of the month), family (I was able to spend a week with my brother and his wife and children here and then another week at their home in Indiana), and socially (lots of Dutch Blitz still, plus time with my book club and Mission Community at church.) It was not, however, the best month of the year for my reading.

I always expect my reading to drop off when my niece and nephews are here. And this month my mother and I kept them on our own for a full week. By the time I got back from Indiana, I had an email from Goodreads asking me if I'd forgotten to update my reading. Stay at home moms who read, I salute you. I read maybe 200 pages during the first two weeks of the month. Not that I'm complaining - nothing makes me happier than playing with those precious children.

When I wasn't hanging out with friends, playing frantic games of cards with my siblings and husband, or basking in the glow of my three favorite kids in all the world, I read:
