Thoughts:

I started strong in January with the expectation that I would be unlikely to match that pace throughout the year. So I’m pleasantly surprised to get to the end of February and find that I’ve read eleven books. Only one less than January and January has three more days in it! I’m beginning to feel like I can read faster than I can write reviews but hopefully I can fill in those blanks in the coming days.

February held quite a bit of non-fiction (for me at least). Highlights over all were When Breath Becomes Air, Minister Without Portfolio, Quiet, Miss Burma, The Parade, and Transcription. Looking at this list it was quite a good reading month.
