I haven’t done one of these things in ages. So I’m going to try to take that up again. I won’t list all the books I’ve read in February, because I read a helluva lot of comics for Comics February! Here are my two posts so far- Comics February Week One (and a half) and Comics February part 2. And because it was Comics February, I posted two more comics-related posts:
Also, last month, Scribd announced that it will be limiting the number of ebooks its subscribers can read, from unlimited to 3 a month! THREE! I sometimes can read three in a day if it is comics!! So ever since the sad news, I have been devouring comics and ebooks on Scribd, as much as I can. I had paid for a yearly membership (about $48), yes they do offer it, but they just don’t shout out about it, and that lasts until August, so I will see how this whole just three books thing works.
I also took part in my first ever Book Bloggers Awareness Week! This was a series of five posts throughout one week, including an interview with a fellow blogger. It was pretty fun and I got to know lots of new-to-me bloggers.
Reading challenges-wise, I’ve done ok for the Back to the Classics Challenge, having read five books although i’ve only written about three. I haven’t done so well with #readmyowndamnbooks partly because I’ve been reading comics! And Diversity on the Shelf, well once again my problem is with writing posts about the books I read!
February was a better month health-wise. January just seemed to have thrown one bout of sickness at me after another. And you know how it is with us stay-home parents, we don’t get sick days! So I’ve started making sure I get out there every morning and walk for at least half an hour. Those of you who run several Ks a day are probably smirking at that, but eh, I really hate to run, so I just try to walk fast and hope that works. And I also try to hit that glorious 10k steps a day.
In the kitchen, I have been trying out new recipes! I made a one-pot pasta dish the other day, which I’m talking about on Weekend Cooking this weekend. I made slow-cooker pork ragu for the first time and Chinese-style sausage buns using the tangzhong method (a cooked flour or roux).
So in March, I’m keeping my goals similar.
- Walk every day. Or at least every weekday.
- Try out more new recipes
- Read more of my own damn books, especially since I just bought some more from Book Outlet.
- Also, post about the books I read, even if it’s just a paragraph!
How was your February? What are your plans for March?
