Read in February 2011

Strangely enough, although the month of February had only 28 days, I could not wait for it to finish. Is it with the illusion that spring would be here on March 1st? Certainly not in the Midwest…

And so, as snowy, gloomy and cold days follow one another without much change, my list of read books keeps growing at an incredible pace this year: in 2 months, I’ve read about a  third of what I read last year! And most of this reading is done basically between 7:00  and 11:00 pm. or 12:00… or 1:00 a.m. all depending if it’s a real page turner that I can NOT absolutely leave until the next day.  The worst is when my husband is caught in the same problem at the same time…

And this month, I had quite a few great page turners! I’m actually amazed att he number of great new writers I discover every week!

So this past month, I managed to read 9 books and listen to 3 audiobooks.
This is a total of 2192 pages, with an average of 78.28 pages/day.
And 32:30 hours, with an average of 1:15 hour/day
