April 2013 Wrap-Up

Here's a summary of my book-related activity for April, just a wee bit late. The highlight was definitely the 24 Hour Read-a-Thon! There was also the Children's Hospital Book Market, at which I was quite restrained, I rather think, but it still wasn't great for my tbr pile. *smiles sheepishly*

The Host by Stephenie Meyer (TBR pile)
The Witches by Roald Dahl (new book)
