Current Read

A Zombie’s History of the United States by Dr. Worm Miller

Books I Gave Up On (1 books)

Fundraising the Dead by Sheila Connolly — Gave it 50 pages, but couldn’t get into the story.  It’s a mystery and I don’t think those are my cup of tea.  Oh well, on to the next book.

17 books in the shortest month of the year!  That is definitely a great total.  Of course, many of the books this month were “easy” fun reads, but it’s still reading.  I had fun getting into the “romantic” atmosphere for February.  As for my favorites, I am going to have to go with At the Scent of Water (very moving and sad, but happy too) and Flip This Zombie (fun, fun, and more fun).

Next month, the focus of the Year of Reading is Fantasy.  I’ve already got a stack of fantasy books sitting on my floor just waiting to be opened.  I think it will be a good month.  And it’s my birthday month!  Extra fun!  On a related note, reviewing my reading challenges, I have decided to increase my fantasy challenge to the “addicted” level of 12 books.  I’m well on my way there.
