I know that the stats show a decrease in my reading as far as pages go. Around 30% less is a bit of a blooper, but January is more or less an anomaly and so was February. I do not expect to have a page count above 2,000 in the months to come with the tide of responsibilities in motion and all that jazz. What I managed to do in February was to add a healthy gash in my ever growing TBR BABYLON TOWER OF READERLY DOOM and reduce the number of physical books I have to read. All promises and immediate promises have been kept and I am quite happy to nail all the deadlines I set myself. I know, obsessive much.

My physical TBR pile is still overweight. I actually plan to reduce it to a manageable degree, but there is still time for that. My ambition for March, April and May is to sit down and do what I should have done from the start, devour all Angry Robot titles in my possession. I am now doing a new immediate TBR list and so far for March alone I have seventeen novels I want to read. The bulk is mainly made of AR books, but they will be spread over the three month period or perhaps four depending on what commitments I am tempted to make over the course of the time.
