The scene: // It’s a windy and wet Sunday morning. The sun is out, but not for long as rain is in the forecast. I’m typing up a quick post before I start on our Sunday dinner of short ribs.
January was filled with a ton of changes including moving into my new townhouse. I spent February trying to adjust while also turning this new house into a home. Even with the hectic month, I still got a lot of reading done with mainly comics and children’s books. 28 books read in all. The best books of February includes the Lumberjanes series, Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales: The Underground Abductor, and biographies about Helen Keller and Typhoid Mary.
My March TBR pile includes books in a variety of genres. My goal is to read more books out of my comfort zone and I think this stack will do just that. There’s no way I can finish this stack in a month, but these are the books I’m focusing on.
Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life by Karen Armstrong is a book that I started reading a few days ago thanks to Joy. The beginning could’ve been trimmed down a tad, but I’m enjoying it so far.
