    Wow! That’s a lot of books.  A lot of middle of the road reads, a few not so good ones.  I would have to say that I my favorite for the month was Autumn by David Moody.  I just found the sequel (Autumn: The City) at the library.  It’s moving up my TBR pile.

    On my life besides books, it was a month of birthdays.  Mine, my dad’s, J’s, and the boys.  Lots of celebrations and craziness.  And now the house is filled with even more toys.  We really need to do a complete cleanout soon.

    Now we’re off to spring break! and beginning April’s reading.
