Again I only read four books in February, but this time I haven’t posted reviews for any of them yet! (Oh dear.) The four books I read were:
The Undertaking: Life Studies from the Dismal Trade by Thomas Lynch
My Little Red Book edited by Rachel Kauder Nalebuff (review & giveaway coming tomorrow)
The Pages in Between: A Holocaust Legacy of Two Families, One Home by Erin Einhorn
Skin Deep by E. M. Crane
Reviews are in the works, and I enjoyed all four of these books!
I reviewed four books this month, again one every Monday (click on links for reviews):
The Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker
No One You Know by Michelle Richmond
Good to a Fault by Marina Endicott
The Only True Genius in the Family by Jennie Nash
My “similar covers” posts have become a more regular feature: I posted about them three times in February, the latter two being examples of the same image being used on the covers of two different books.
If you missed any of these posts this month, they were:
Girl in bathing cap
I also joined in Bermudaonion’s new weekly meme, Wondrous Words Wednesday, twice this month.
Last month, I forgot to mention that I also joined another new-to-me meme, the monthly What’s on Your Nightstand (at 5 Minutes for Books).
Finally, I gave away three copies of the excellent The Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker, courtesy of Hachette.
A few blog stats:
Increase in number of unique visitors (compared to January): 47%
These visitors hail from 31 different countries (the U.S., Canada and the U.K. being the top three). I’ve had visitors from 51 regions of the U.S. (every state except Montana; top states: California and New York) and 46 Canadian cities.
Top viewed post (excluding giveaway): Review of Testimony by Anita Shreve
Number of books acquired: 17
My resolution for February was to write more reviews and acquire fewer books, at which I failed miserably! Ah well, I’ll try to do better in March.
What good books did you read last month?
