This is my third Challenge update, and I haven’t read any new books towards my Local Heroes target of 6.  In fact I didn’t do much reading this month – until my holiday – except of the manuscript of my Dad’s memoirs, White Water Landings, which I’ve been preparing for paperback, hardback and ebook release on 11th May.

So I’m still only 2 books into my challenge, but that is one-third of the way through, and we’re only at the end of the first quarter of 2015, so I think I can be forgiven.

If you’ve already signed up, leave a message in the comments on how you’re doing.  If you haven’t signed up yet, put your name and the number of books you’re aiming for (3, 6, or 10) and link your blog in the linky below.

This month I’ve read (that should be re-read) Moonfleet by John Meade Falkner, wich I enjoyed even more than when I was a kid, Homecoming by Sue Ann Bowling, which I’ll be reviewing on Saturday, Your Eight O’clock is Dead by Kat Jorgensen, and The Reluctant Fundamentalist, another re-read, which is my bookclub book for the month.

According to Goodreads I’m two books behind schedule, but my excuse is I’ve read one of a collection of three books in one volume, and also a beta-read of a really good cosy mystery.  So I’m currently counting 13 towards my Goodreads target of 60, reviewed 11 for my Mad Reviewer Challenge, and included 2 for the Oddity Odyssey (Never Let Me Go and The Uncommon Reader).

Happy reading, but above all – have fun!

    Did you bring your books (Kindle) to Svalbard?

      I took Homecoming, so I could concentrate on it (It’s quite big), and my Kindle, which was great as I didn’t know how many books I’d have time for. I finished Homecoming in Svalbard, read the Kat Jorgensen on the planes back, and started Distant Seas on the train on the way home!

    I clearly was over-ambitious, as I have yet to read even one for the challenge! Still haven’t found any but local-history, which I do want to read but keep shuffling to the back of the queue.

      Seeing your recent bike ride – have you read Murder in Half Moon Bay? I’m a bit vague on your exact location, but you can widen it a lot, I suspect! The Jinx Schwarz books seem to pass by the same coast.
      Hey, my last one merely visited Norfolk!
