Non-fiction read: 33%

Non-American authors read: 33%

Compared with last month I did better at reading non-American authors, but 2 out of 6 books still isn't very much "non-American". I'm going to try and hit 50% in April. I'm still working on my classics challenge, and since I had to bump The Age of Innocence off the tally, I'm only at 3 out of 8 completed. But Vonnegut is on my list, so it will soon be 4.

  1. Good luck fitting in more non-American authors. It's a lot harder to do than I assumed it would be!

  2. Alley, I know you're right. But I am going to make a big effort in April! Big one.

  3. You are killing it. I have a goal of 5 per month, and I didn't make it for March. :( The Jungle is so BORING. I may never finish. Also, awesome that you keep providing these breakdowns- keeps you on track.

  4. I've read (3) from your March list and liked them. Hope u have a great April.

  5. Great stats for March. Good luck with reading more non-American authors. I surveyed my own stats, and found that I really need to read more female authors... :)

  6. Non-American authors are definitely trickier than I would have expected. Especially if you don't include British authors...

    Great month for you, by the sound of it. And by the way, I love this picture! :-)
