Also, over February and March, I read approximately 128 picturebooks for my picturebook class and wrote 25 essays on them. NBD.

So lately I’m much more into nonfiction than fiction. I can’t get a lot of fiction to hold my attention the way it should, though it helped when I did a reading at the Brookline Library and remembered that I do actually like to write, and that there are really good new YA writers out there. I’m proud of myself this month for finally reading a literary journal, and I’m going to try and find more that I can download by PDF and read on my Kindle, because that seems to be a way that I actually get through them. Also still doing pretty well on the not buying lots of books thing. Must remember to watch movies, though. I’m doing very well with half of this FiftyFiftyMe, but obviously not so well with the other half.
