March 2009 (Jan & Feb) Reading Wrap Up

A good long while now, I have been meaning to do some sort of wrap up and now with inspiration from Devourer of Books, I am finally organizing myself enough to do so.

In November last year I know I said: Wow. Unless I missed something, I read 109 books in 2008 (so far!) I know I can fit some more in Nov and December as well. Neat! I've never kept count before, an I'm impressed!

For this one post, I'm just linking to my review in Goodreads and the author pages there. Later posts I will actually link back to my reviews on Creative Madness. (This time I'm saving effort and lots of time since it is three months of listings).

Feeling a lack of desire for reading has been a real issue the last four months really (been pregnant for four and half now...). It seems to come in waves. Then I spent the first half of March working on the quilt for Sister B. It is all ready to go once I get the applique completed. I have also spent a good amount of time this month on a cross stitch for Sister L's baby that might actually come tonight! Other bits of my time have been preoccupied with working on some genealogy transcriptions of original manuscripts, which boy that can be fun and fascinating and also a huge strain on the eyes!

Hopefully in April, I will get to read many more! I have a huge pile staring at me. Some in particular that I am looking forward to are:

The Swan Maiden by Jules Watson
Various titles from B&H Fiction (12+ titles)
A couple new ones sent via my new favorite Bethany House publicist (3+)
Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev (ARC)

*sigh* At least I'm eager. Now as soon as I can finish this cross stitch quilt, I'll be ready to read more!
