What I'm Reading Mondays and Weekly Wrap-Up for 02/25/13

Another great reading week, thanks to doing pretty much nothing but reading and watching TV all week!

I finally finished Beloved Enemy and reviewed it, as well as Justice.  I also read and reviewed four children's books.  I started two more books and I'm back to reading A Study in Scarlet again.

  1. Your week sounds so good-I cannot wait to kick back and do more reading as I've been very stressed by work this month. March should be more relaxed. I also have Sexy Feminism in my reading queue-hope we like it!

    1. Me too! I can't wait to read your thoughts on it!

      I hope you can get in some more reading time, too!

  2. Wow, you got a lot of reading done!!

    1. I have been on a roll lately! I hope it continues!

    1. So far, I am liking it. It is a good collection.

  4. Becca, I worry about these books I cannot start to read. However, after reading how well-planned and determined you are in moving to the next level of your reading pace, I am just embarrassed. I feel so lethargic. Thanks for the reminders!

    2. It's about reading what you want to and what makes you happy. If it doesn't make you keep turning the pages, it's not worth it!
