This February we had a whole extra day for reading, and a good thing.  My month got busier and busier each day in adventures to the Edgar Allen Poe museum, time out with friends, joining the YMCA, and all the fun of homeschooling. 

My goal for the year originally began as an effort to plow through the shelf of books in my closet.  I started with about 120 books and somehow now have about 130-140.  When I’ve read eighteen books now, this leaves me to question what might be wrong with my math.

Ahhh, the joys of being a book-worm!

I made the mistake of using a friend’s discount at the bookstore, several friends loaned me books, my mother added a few more.  All that equals to suddenly my book stacks grow instead of shrink.  EEEK.  Something tells me it is a never ending cycle.

Short of decided to put aside all my writing goals, my work out goals, homeschool goals, and reading a book a day… I might need to come to terms that the shelf in my closet shall forever bow under the weight of my reading stack.

I am doing well for my 50 in 2008 goal, so that is good!

I did review most of the books I read this month.  I just never posted them to my blog.  I promise to release them over the course of the next week.  Last month I read 12, this month I read 6.  I vow this will not form a pattern. March shall bring more than 3 completed books!

13. Shopaholic and Baby by Sophie Kinsella
14. Specials by Scott Westerfield
15. Secrets of My Suburban Life by Lauren Baratz-Logsted
16. Extras by Scott Westerfield
17. A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore
18. Mortified: Real Words, Real People, Real Pathetic by David Nadelberg

With two anthologies in the works, a classic partially read, an audiobook almost done, and a stack of books almost half my height, I cannot wait to review for March!

Happy Reading!
