February in a Nut Shell

February was a very gray month around these parts: some snow, lots of rain, and many days spent at home just reading. I managed to read (14) books in February so I am pretty happy. I read lots of books that were pretty good. Through the books I read, I visited places in India and Australia. I also saw some more of the United States especially New England: Connecticut, New Hampshire, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. I also visited: California, Illinois, Wisconsin, Texas and Ohio.

  1. You had a really good month of reading-congrats. I didn't have a great month with getting the flu so I'm really hoping March will be much better.

  2. wow, what a great reading month! Mine felt like it was slow-going for the most part but I did read some good books so that's what counts. Hopefully March will be a bit more productive :)

    Hope you'll have lots of good reads in March too!
