Your guide to what's happening at Paper Bindings.

May was full of excitement!

Paper Bindings - May 2015 Recap - The Month of Bookish Things

The only real surprise here was how nicely the divided up into 1/4 and 3/4 ratio.

To keep the numbers balanced, I only put each book into one category. Is anyone surprised that paranormal wins once again?

Oh my, those DNFs this month again! At least I'm cleaning up my ebook pile some. And if we ignore those, then I didn't have too bad of a reading month. 

Up On The Blog

In preparation for BEA/BookCon, we shared five things I bet you didn't know about Carrie, Tisha, Tracy, and Stephanie.

We hosted our first ever physical prize giveaway for a Harry Potter themed prize pack.


I'm going to continue my trend of working on all books for review and alternating those with a mix of books I own and books in a series. Hopefully I will make a dent in the completed series that I haven't finished yet. My goal is to get 100% caught up on all series I read by the end of the year. I can do this.
