Road Narrative Update for March 2019: 04/03/19

Road Narrative Update for February 2019

I've revised last month's changes to how I report on the progress with the road narrative spectrum project. Rather than arrows pointing to the different books read and reviewed as well as essays written, I am providing a color coded key. I've also spelled out each title's placement, so if you're colorblind, you can still find where the stories still relative to each other as well as to the spectrum as a whole.

My reading was up for March. I read ten books, up from February's five. Half of them were released this year and are either already reviewed or will be soon.

April's reading might have fewer books as I am also reading for work. I am trying to come up with a bird and dinosaur art week for a day camp at the gallery where I work.
