What I Read in February

Not much to report in our home for the month of February.  We had more snow, which meant more snow days, and the crazy thing is that I totally missed my job while I was at home.  I guess that's the major development this month: I am falling in love with my job.  My boss is amazing and supportive and wants to teach me new skills; I love what I'm doing and feel like I'm really developing my skill set; and I get to play with books.  Bonus: I have not one single time been cursed at, hit on, or had to break up a fight between students.  They are respectful and polite.  It's like living in an alternate world.  I think I'm going to come up with a whole post later about the differences and also maybe something about why I chose to leave for profit education.  Would anyone be interested in that?

Here's what I read in February:

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

Bobcat and Other Stories by Rebecca Lee

Red Moon by Benjamin Percy

Revenge by Yoko Ogawa

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

The Silent Wife by A.S.A Harrison

Sex In The South: Unbuckling The Bible Belt by Suzi Parker

Five Days At Memorial by Sheri Fink
Obviously, I'm ridiculously behind on my reviews.  

Books read in February: 10
Pages read in February: 3171

What did you read in February?


  1. You read far more than I might ever hope to...except maybe when I retire. Mostly I read student essays and journals and the like, and re-read the novels I'm teaching (currently The Five People You Meet in Heaven).

    I tend to listen to novels (audiobooks) so I can fit 'reading in' while I drive or wash dishes, etc. With those I just finished Citizen Soldier by Stephen E. Ambrose and Tricked by Kevin Hearne.

    Looking forward to your reviews. Based on your review of Hyperbole and a Half, I got a copy for my wife and she's enjoying it. Also picked up a copy for a co-worker, who also grades a lot, so probably won't be able to delve into it until this summer.

  2. I look forward to your Silent Wife review the most, great month of reading though.
