  1. Oh a great reading month so audiobooks sure did help with the reading and packing. I do hope you will be in your new house soon. How exciting, a lot of work but in the end I hope it is fantastic.

  2. Wow! 18 books! That's awesome!!! I hope you have a good May!

  3. 18 books is impressive especially with moving! I think I completely shut down last time we moved - though I could see how audio books would help a lot!

  4. Hi,
    Great list of books. I've been wanting to start the Private Series by James Patterson. I'll be adding that to my Series books list. Have a great day!
