This month, I read seven books. YASSS! Now I know I say this every month, but April may not be looking as great - I've got a couple double-digit papers due for this final month of the semester, and I'll be getting my wisdom teeth cut out this month, so I'm also fairly nervous about that just incapacitating me from doing anything except sleeping for a while. So, check back in next month to see my final count for April reads.

For March, see below for everything I got through for the month.
