I was surprised that I managed to keep up the reading pace in February.
The conditions were great. We had incredible snow in Seattle (which meant I wasn't commuting), and we spent the better part of a week in Disneyland with the kids on vacation (also good for my page count).
I just didn't read many of the books that I thought I'd read at the end of January. I liked my list just fine at the end of January, but my tastes definitely drifted mid-month. I blame the snow. Or the Mickey waffles.
I'm going to try not to feel guilty for blogging about a list of books -- and then reading something else. I like the concept of monthly reading lists, and I'm still committed to reading all the books on my reading list, but I've realized if I'm going to put in the time, I should do it with books I'm totally into.
