Recap of a Dozen (books, not doughnuts)
March turned out to be a doozy of a month, in just about every fashion. We're still training a puppy, raising a non-binary teenaged human, trying hard to stay in contact with an adult child, and adjusting to the news that we will, for the 7th time, be embarking upon a major move. Reading has always been my refuge, and this month I managed to get through twelve titles. Admittedly, three of them should have been one. In the event that you just glance here and look at the ratings please note: Never, Never gets a 3-star rating from me mostly because I was furious that Audible made it three separate titles, at the full credit per title price. Evidently, it is possible to purchase all three as one physical book for approximately 20% of what I paid for the credits. That's more than a little annoying. And since I clearly need sugar to chill out, I really should consider reviewing both doughnuts and books.
