March in Review

What I Learned

That I have obsessive tendencies. I think I knew that, but I joined Marvel Unlimited on the 16th of March and have been cranking out the comics ever since! I sit down to write posts about what I have read so far this year and the words just never seem to flow. I would like to talk about some of the stuff that I read at some point! Because, well, I have read a lot of good stuff! March was essentially all about comic books. I am hoping to get back to longer stuff in April. We will see how the year goes!

  1. What an amazing month of reading for you!! I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts on some of these!

  2. You had such a great reading month! I'm trying to decide what comic to read next. I'm thinking Mystic. Or Fall of Cthulhu. Or Hexed. Or Hawkeye. I should just toss a coin!

  3. Looks like such a fun reading month!

  4. We read a lot of the same comics :D I really want Mystic, but it's proving hard to find over here.

  5. Oh wow - I'm impressed! The subscription model seems to be working well for you - I've been eyeing Scribd but not taken the plunge yet.

  6. Wow - look at all those books! March was a very slow month for me but I'm hopeful about April :) Here's to a great month ahead!

  7. Wow... an amazing comic book reading month! I love obsessions. ;-)))

  8. You got a lot of reading done!

  9. Wow, you had an amazing month! I know what you mean about the words not flowing - writing reviews gets harder and harder to do.

  10. You have read so much. Wow. And you've really taken good advantage of the subscription services.
