It's A Wrap - End of Month Round Up

As you know my blogging is a little erratic at present.  However, I did fit in a couple of book reviews this month, a post about the event I held for Oxfam's International Women's Day and a give-away.  Oh!  I also received an award!

I have read 10 books this month and reviewed 3 of them.

Losers
Lucky Jim - Kingsley Amis (I know, an esteemed author and book!  I read this years ago and didn't like it then.  This was chosen for book group and I tried but I haven't changed my mind.  It's just not for me.)

I posted about my Book Swap for Oxfam's International Women's Day which I held for the second year running.

I ran a give-away: One copy of Surfing in Stilettos by Carole E Wyer won by Jo from Jaffareadstoo blog.

I was a recipient of the Sunshine Award.

Future Plans
Once again I have been selected as a giver for World Book Night.  I will be giving away Damage by Josephine Hart, my second choice.
I will be hosting another give-away on my blog in April.  Keep an eye out for that!

How was your reading in March?
