April's Reading Challenge Update

More challenge victories -yay reading! Six out of 20 challenges have been successfully completed. Four challenges are over half way completed. The challenges I'm most worried about is the What's in a Name and the Game of Thrones but there is still eight months to go so anything is possible.

I read 10 books this month making my total books read this year 40. That's double the movies I've watched, which is a nice change. That figure is going to drop next month since I rented ten movies for this coming week (the store was moving locations and had a great "help us movie" rental price).

My favourite read and the book I would recommend is In Defense of Food by Michael Pollen. The subject of why and what we eat has interested me for a long time and Pollen's writing enhanced my thoughts and questions on the subject. The other book that got me thinking was M.T. Anderson's cyberpunk dystopia Feed. I would say I enjoyed the book but it was interesting and it brought up ideas and subjects I'm still processing.
