February Reading List

Umm, I find this hard to believe, but I only finished one book this month: Babbit by Sinclair Lewis. I found it fascinating. Set in the 20's, I realized that human nature is human nature -- it's only the technology that is different. He was worried about his children, frustrated with his marriage, struggling with relationships and dedicated to his job and friends. I don't know that I've ever read Sinclair Lewis before, and his writing style didn't make me want to run out and read more, but I'm glad I read this classic.

I do have quite the pile on my bedside table, though, including a fun craft book that I will be reviewing soon. Hopefully March will be a better reading month for me.

It's been a crazy month, and just when I thought we were leaving illness behind (illnesses that started around Thanksgiving, going round between my sis, me, my kids, my husband -- and different illnesses! It's not like we've been passing the same bug around! Stomach bugs, bronchitis, pneumonia, colds, kidney infections, colds) C has a rotten sinus infection and I've managed to completely lose my voice. I'm hoping that resting it completely tomorrow will bring it back because I have to teach on Monday, and then again Thursday and Friday.

I'm hoping to be back to regular blogging this week, but I can't make any promises. DH picked up a 2nd job, I am teaching more, I have more writing assignments, and these pesky kids want to be cared for on top of it all.

  1. Cool - I look forward to more book reviews! Thanks for sharing this one. :)

    I hope you are feeling better soon and the whole family gets healthy. We are struggling with the same issue [since August someone has been sick in our house!] so I definitely commiserate.

    I hope you are enjoying teaching - it seems like a perfect job for you!
