Month in Review - February

February I challenged myself to read from my Nook and try to avoid paper books. I think I did quite well. I finished reading Nachtstürm Castle: A Gothic Austen Novel by Emily C.A. Snyder and I really liked it. So if you happen to read this post and read Northanger Abbey I suggest you give this book a try. After reading it I'm now tempted to read The Mysteries of Udolpho, by Ann Radcliffe.

I got Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer and only got a few pages into it, it just wasn't capturing my attention. I'm not giving up on the book, I'm just putting it off for awhile. I'm going to try to pick it back up later this year to see if I can read it, (I really want to!).

This last week I got the newest J.D. Robb book in at the library so there was no putting off reading that for a week so I started and finished it in a few days and got back to The Apothecary's Daughter by Julie Klassen.

I read six ebooks this month:
and started the Apothecary's Daughter by Juile Klassen

I finished two regular books:
  • Nachtsturm Castle by Emily C. A. Snyder
  • Celebrity in Death by J.D. Robb

I Listened to two audio books:
  • Women, Food, and Good by Geneen Roth
  • Seriously...I'm Kidding by Ellen Degeneres
and started Texas! Chase by Sandra Brown


  1.  How was the Ellen Degeneres book?

  2. Funny.  I really liked it. Except for chapter 36 where she takes a break from reading the book and eats an apple.

Blind Date with a Book

Last year I put together a book display called Blind Date with a Book.  I found the idea through another librarian's post and thought it was great.  Last year I wrapped 19 books and 15 books were checked out.  We asked that people reviewed the book but unfortunately only two people returned reviews.
Last year's books included:

In the Hot Zone by Kevin SitesNight by Elie WieselTom Clancy's Ghost Recon by Daivd MichaelsMacbeth by ShakespearA Million Little Pieces by James FreyWolf Hall by Hilary MantelAn Inconvenient Truth by Al GoreUnder the Dome by Stephen KingLawless by Nora RobertsThe Sinatra Files by Tom KuntzThe Help by Kathryn StockettThe Dante Club by Matthew PearlFord County by John GrishamThe Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel BarberyThe Postmistress by Sarah BlakeA Beautiful Mind by Sylvia NasarHide & Seek by James PattersonA Vintage Affair by Isabel WolfGorgeous East by Robert Girardi Most of these books were ones that I either had read or wanted to read.

Went to the 2013 NJLA Adult Services Forum...left with a book list.

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!
