Monthly Update – February 2010


February was a successful month for me, even though I only completed one book. It was a success because one of my goals this year is to NOT to fall behind on doing the write-ups for books I’ve read during the year. So far, I’ve read a total of four books in 2010 and all four write-ups are posted. Yay! Also, I managed to post one backlogged review from 2009.

In February, my primary focus was visiting the Fort Knox area and finding a place to live.  I spent more time out there than I originally intended, thanks to the snowstorms in the DC area — flights into Reagan National were canceled.  However, I did find a place.  It has a huge finished basement!  There is plenty of space for bookcases.  Lots and lots of bookcases.  I can’t wait to post pictures.  Another bonus:  there is a used bookstore within walking distance of the house.  I visited it (of course) and learned something — the bookstore and the one located not far from me here in Northern VA are both part of a chain.  It was so weird to walk into the place and see the bright orange book shelves

You would think, with four extra days of free time, that I would have finished the book I was reading and started something on my Sony eReader.  Well, you’d be wrong.  It was really difficult to concentrate on a book while busy daydreaming about how I would arrange the bookcases I have and which books should go in which bookcase.
