March 2015 recap... which reading came to a screeching halt.

I had a lot of trouble reading the John Cleese autobiography. He's amusing, but he wrote this book the same way he speaks. It would be better as an audio book, and I don't do audio books. I switched to another book when I realized that I was avoiding reading because of this book.

Then I tried a Maeve Binchy book, billed as "Five decades of selected writings from the Irish Times." Since I've read a lot of her books, I already knew her style of writing. It was easier to read than the Cleese book, but without that thread of characters running though it, it was hard to get through.

Hopefully, my next book will be easier to read!
