A little delayed, but here is my monthly summary for April:  The month of April seemed like a slow reading month for me.  However, it was a wonderful month.  I participated in Dewey’s 24 hour read-a-thon — which was a blast.  I even won a set of great non-fiction books.  My birthday was in April, which allowed me to contemplate my past some.

I read several short stories this month.  This included some read during the 24 hour read-a-thon.  Some of the short stories I read were wonderfully provided by The Reading Life, which showcases short stories from all over the world.  Others were from a collection of Science Fiction short stories, including the Curious Case of Benjamin Button.  I did not write reviews on any of the shorts I read, though I may do this in the future.
