52 books update

I thought given that we are almost at the end of the first quarter of 2013 (already!) I should do an update on my 52 books challenge.

I was up to date a couple weeks ago having read 10 books in 10 weeks but unfortunetly the last couple weeks have been really busy so I haven't gotten any further than that.  However, start of March I read 2 books in 3 days so hopefully if I can have another weekend like that, maybe over Easter, I'll be back up to date again.

The first book I picked Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall I really struggled to get on with, I persisted through a couple hundred pages hoping it would get easier to read but ended up giving up.  Which was annoying as I could have read a different book in that time. 

I think my favourite so far has to be The Racketeer by John Grisham.  I couldn't put that one down!  I also enjoyed Life Of Pi, bit of a slow starter but got really into it once it got going.  I have definitely managed more books this year than I did this time last year so this challenege is making me read more. 

How is everyone else getting on?  Has anyone managed to keep up to date and read 12?
