Reading Wrap-up For May at Moonshine and Rosefire

Hello everyone out there and I hope that you all had a terrific reading month for yourselves. I am known as Rosefire around the Internet and this is my new personal reading blog. I originally posted my reviews over at my daughter’s blog, Emeraldfire’s Bookmark but am now in the process of transferring them all over to my own blog. My daughter makes blogging look like so much fun that I thought that I would try it out for myself! 🙂

Anyway, I started out May with 1,035 books lying around the house and ended the month with 1,026 books unread. All the books that I acquired this month came from Paperback Swap.

Let me try to break down the influx for you:

Changes to the TBR pile

The Weight of Water by Anita Shreve
Fortune’s Hand by Belva Plain
Stardust by Robert B. Parker

Read from my TBR pile (Yes! I am a reading machine :))

Total Joy by Marabel Morgan

Added to my TBR pile (oh well, you win some and you lose some! Not too bad though, I suppose:))

Taken off my TBR pile and sent to a new home (Yay! Happy Dance! :))

Well, there it is…the breakdown! All in all, a very good reading month for me. Here’s a further breakdown:

So, there you go! The reading month that was May. I hope that you all had an equally good reading month; if not a little better. 🙂 See you all next month! 🙂

  1. Wow, looks like you had an awesome month of reading! Way to go!

    I read 10 books this month. I read books from several genres. I'd say that 7 of the 10 books I read in May were the remaining 3 reads were just okay.

    I see you are a member of Paperback Swap. How do you like Paperback Swap? I've thought about joining, but end up exchanging books with other readers on Bookcrossing.

  2. Hello there,
    My daughter and I do enjoy being members of Paperback Swap and the site does have a remarkable selection of books to trade. We've been members ourselves since March of 2009, and we've certainly had great fun interacting with everyone and receiving such marvelous books.

    Occasionally, we've met someone who seems extremely fastidious about the condition of the books that they receive – going above and beyond the parameters of Paperback Swap's Trading Conditions. But we usually put it down to the personal preferences of some of the members.
