May Re-Cap

I got a lot of Audiobooks in this month and read one book, yeah, just one.  Actual reading seems to be something of the past for me lately.  I need to find my way back to it because there are some books that don't have an Audio version.  I do tend to find lots more actual reading time in the summer, so we'll see...13 books total for the month is pretty good though.  Daisy Jones & the six was clearly my favorite book of the month and as of right now Best Book of the Year.
