TSS (February 28): February wrap-up

The Sunday Salon.com So I didn’t meet my goal of reading 25 books this month, but I almost made it! Surprise! I just accidentally read all nine trade paperbacks of the Preacher series today. Um. So I met my goal after all!

Anyway, this month was, overall, so-so. I’ve been worrying lately that I don’t have enough discussion posts, or just posts that aren’t book reviews. I’ve been thinking about adding another meme or two– maybe I should start doing Library Loot again? And maybe one new one, something related to…I don’t know. Book covers? What do you think? Are there any specific memes y’all are interested in me doing, or should I just do whatever?

I think I just kind of feel dissatisfied with my blog and where it’s going. I want to rev things up a bit! I just have to figure out how to do that.

Currently reading:
The Sleepers of Erin by Jonathan Gash. It’s a Lovejoy mystery, and it’s pretty good. I’ll probably finish it today, which is why I’m counting it in my totals! Or I’ll get distracted by a comic book series! Y’know, either one.

  1. 16 books?! You did great. I write more posts about reading and books than book reviews so I decided I’m going to change that. I think you should do whatever makes you feel better about blogging. I do love your library loot posts. Have a great week.

  2. 25! That’s a crazy goal (for me anyway). My goal was 20 and I just barely made it. Of course a bunch of those were chunksters. I’m sure I could read 25 Babysitter’s Club books in a month!

    1. Well, I made it 25 because I have a BUTTLOAD of TBR books that need to be read (and then mostly gotten rid of) before I leave to go abroad next year, and that seemed to be the best way to do it. :U

  3. Wow, 16 books, I was lucky to get two in this month; hopefully March will be more productive. Personally, I think your blog is great; and I’m sure that frustration will lead to some fantastic ideas.

  4. I think you should be proud of reading 16 books in a month. The only way I would get anywhere near that number is if I was reading nothing but graphic novels and audiobooks!

  5. 16 books is still great! 🙂

    You know, I have periods when I’m annoyed w/ my blog, and I tend to worry about doing too many reviews too. But I played around a bit and found a balance and now I’m happy w/my blog again!

    So I’d say experiment for awhile & see what makes you happiest.
