My April #bookspinbingo board. Several DNF‘s this month including Black Cake and Weather Girl. Just could not get into either of them. Maybe another time. Loved The Diamond Eye. Kate Quinn is amazing as usual. I recommend all her books on audio. Read 3 nonfictions, one ARC, and am still working my way through Don Quixote. April went by so fast!

I finished my 1st chunkster of the year today. I learned so much about our 1st president. We might have had a very different country without him. There were many great minds involved in America winning it‘s independence and forming it‘s own government, but George Washington was pivotal in making it all work. A solid 4.5 stars from me.

I finished this one today. It had scheduled it for 3 months at 959 pages, and finished early. I really enjoyed this. It was easy to read and packed full of information that I didn‘t know about Grant. I am glad I read it.

I also added it to my March #bookspinbingo list because I was going to finish it this month. It ended up being my #bookspin book. I am happy to be done to move on to something else, but so glad I read it.

TheAromaofBooks Yay!! I'll have to check this one out. My husband really enjoys biographies. 2y
