I've really gotten out of the habit of posting here. I really want to get back to it on a more regular basis. #readinfebruary #February2019 #romantsy

Here is my February warp up. The month didn't go as planned. The highlights are for read books. The two in yellow were unplanned. I have started all but Ink and Bone. I am still struggling with The Wolf and the Watchman. I plan to make a serious push to finish it in March.🤞

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Good job! 📚💖 5mo
jb72 You‘ve inspired me to put a list in my billeted journal of books planned. I keep trying to figure out my series reads and that‘ll be a great way to keep track. 5mo
TheSpineView @jb72 I have a spreadsheet too but I still like to write it all out. It makes me feel committed! 5mo

February has been very crazy, indeed! Lots of exciting things happening at the library in the coming months, but it also means a lot of prep work for it. Most nights, I drop on the couch and stare at the TV. But, I did manage to finish a few books this month, and I‘m still ahead on the Goodreads challenge.

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Great job! 📚💖 5mo

My February #wrapup. My reading this month has definitely been influenced by my starting my internship, and then not having much time or energy to read. At least not as much as I had when I was just at home all day 😅 I‘m hoping March will bring some reading time and energy, but I‘m trying not to be too tough on myself. Sometimes, you just need to chill with bad tv, and I‘m okay with that 🙌

Suet624 You got a lot of good reads in. 5mo
RachelO There‘s a definite place for bad tv - but your February reads still look amazing! 5mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego You did great! 📖💖 5mo
ephemeralwaltz Great month! Bad TV is the best solution sometimes. 4mo

I‘d like to thank Harry Potter for getting my page count up and the Little People, Big Dreams board books for getting my books read count up. February was a brutal month that cut into my reading time so here‘s hoping for a better March!

15 books read this month, 8 books by Black authors for Black History Month. I finished my #Booked2019 winter goals. A much better reading month than I expected!

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego You did great! 📚💖 5mo

23 books finished this month! Not bad for a short month! 14 print and 9 audio. 7 nonfiction. Aside from my perennial favorite Ove, the best books were Americanah, Fox 8 (really a short story), Parkland and Shortest Way Home. The only book I really strongly disliked this month was McGlue.

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Wow! Impressive 📚💖 5mo

tournevis I don't get it. Must be an English-language thing. 5mo
Zelma Totally stealing this for my library FB in the future! 5mo
teebe @tournevis In English, colonel is for some reason said with a hard-R (sounds like “kernel”) whereas February‘s first R is basically silent 🤷🏻‍♀️ 5mo
tournevis @teebe Of course. 🤦 5mo
CarolynM @tournevis February should be pronounced with both its Rs but generally English speakers are lazy and leave the first one out. (edited) 5mo
tournevis @CarolynM I remembered. I pronounce it with both, so that's why I was confused first 5mo

I am absolutely terrible at keeping to a reading list so I hope no one checks behind me at the end of the month! In any case, this list is what I hope will be my #FebruaryTBR I'm also still working my way through She-Wolves, a history of England's earliest queens. #ReadingResolutions @Jess7

post image

I dunno... Think maybe I've signed up for too many group reads? 😜🤣
I have other books I want to read too. 😩 Both in reading challenges and just for pleasure. How will I find the time?! Stop list making and start reading. Sure. 😂

Another great month of reading! Only 1 DNF, 2 rereads, and 8 non-fiction. I'm extremely happy about the NF as one of my goals was to read more this year. 😃

I don't foresee any major change for this month's reading roundup, so here are my stats. I'm very pleased with the amount of reading I was able to accomplish in February. I read some very good books & some really awful ones too 😜I only read two nonfiction this month, which I'd like to increase next month @Ebooksandcooks I may need some suggestions! Looking forward to March, which means #summersolstice signup is only a month away!!!!!

Megabooks Yay nonfiction!! 2y
TrishB Great stats 😀👍 2y

Bklover Amazing!👏👏👏📚 2y
Reviewsbylola Great month! I need to know what you bailed on though! 😂😂 2y
Cinfhen Thanks @Reviewsbylola ❤️I bailed on two nonfiction books, that I requested through OverDrive. One was titled 67 Shots, about the shooting that took place on Kent State University in 1970. I read about 150 pages and felt like I got enough of the story to move on. The other is meant to be excellent but it wasn't grabbing me so I figured I'd bail and maybe try another time 2y
Suet624 That's a lot of books! 2y
rachellayown 👏👏👏 2y
Cinfhen @Suet624 @rachellayown Thanks! I've pretty much given up on television so I spend lots of downtime with a book 💜 2y
