Did February just get over? My reading just kind of fell flat last month mainly because work got busy and I began to do other things after coming home each day. Lately, it has been a game of Monopoly cards with the husband and our fathers who are visiting us now. I don't feel too bad really - it's nice to do something other than read or blog. But of course, it makes it so much harder to get back into reading or blogging - wondering how best to slide in without anyone noticing I was gone.
I read just three books this past month - one of which was the audio I was listening to in the car. Thank goodness for that.
What I recommend: Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
Fun read of the month: We Bought a Zoo by Benjamin Mee - this read kind of surprised me because of how much I got pulled into the story. Now I just need to go visit a zoo!
What I hope to read in March
March is likely to be just as bad as February. I have been looking for reads that won't take too much time to read but are still very compelling and great. Couple of days back, I started reading Elie Wiesel's Night. I had always assumed that the size of this book was misleading, that in fact it would be days before I got through it. On the contrary, it's a fast read, but a very moving one. I know I'll probably be following it up with the next two books in his trilogy. The next reads I pick may well be short story collections, unless I find that I'm reading more than doing anything else.
So that's my tentative plan for this month. What are you reading?
