February 2017 wrap-up
Huh, the month of February is already over!
Hurray, Spring is closer, actually Summer is even here some days in Chicago, and then next day we are back to Winter. The poor summer birds that decided to come back so early must be totally confused.
It was another very good month of reading, but I’m already getting late on several reviews… nothing new under the sun!
Here is what I read in February:
7 in print
= with 1,928 pages, that is: 68 pages/day
+ 3 audiobooks
= with 16H43, that is: 35 mn/day
3 in literary fiction:
- Le Principe, by Jérôme Ferrari – ebook
- Gustave Flaubert: The Ambiguity of Imagination, by Guiseppe Cafiero

Plans for March
- Humming along with The Complete of Sherlock Holmes on audio.
I’m reading them in chronological order of publication, and planning to watch a movie of each as well.
I’m counting as separate books the novels, but the short stories as a collection.
So I listened so far to the first two novels, A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of Four, and I have started the first collection of short stories: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. I chose Simon Prebble as the narrator for all of these, he is so good
- I may do something for Travel the World in Books Reading Challenge, this time it’s on North Africa
Come back on Friday
to see what I plan to read in March!
