I am so relieved. I mentioned last week that I had a cold. It didn't go down into my chest! That means that I am not coughing up a lung days after I feel better otherwise. Since that like never happens I am kind of excited! And, yeah, felt like mentioning it... It was a quiet week. I am hoping that March will be a good reading month. We are going away for a week, though, and I am not sure how much reading I will get done during that time. I decided to just bring one physical book and then my e-reader. This meant that when I found out about a 90 percent off coupon for Kobo I may have gone a bit overboard on books. It was fun getting these rather obscure books that my library didn't have and were costly to get otherwise. I included the list at the bottom of this post!
Lucy Maud Montgomery
Yeah... February was not a good month for Montgomery. I need to do better in March! It didn't really help that I only listened to one audiobook the entire month. That meant I didn't even get to Anne of Avonlea. Need to do better.
Graphic Novel Year
I managed to get to two graphic novels after not reading any last week! I finished Locke & Key - Volume 1: Welcome to Lovecraft by Joe Hill and Bayou Volume 1 by Jeremy Love. I even posted about them all ready here.
Other Reading Projects
Nothing for this...
A Snug Life Somewhere by Jan Shapin counts for the Historical Reading Challenge.
Queen of Hearts - The Crown: Volume 1 by Colleen Oakes counts for the What's in a Name Challenge for the category A Position of Royalty.
And, then the graphic novels work for the Graphic Novel challenge.
Well, I finally finished The Splendour Falls by Susanna Kearsley and have moved on to The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon. Entirely not related to any other project I have going on, but I have heard really good things about it!
The Debt of Tamar by Nicole Dweck
A reread by audio. Review coming soon!
An enjoyable retelling of Alice in Wonderland. Review coming soon.

So, what did I get from the Kobo sale? Too much, but at least they didn't cost much! I am actually a bit amazed... I have had my e-reader 3 years... maybe 4? And I have only ever bought 69 e-books from Kobo. That is all discounted books and free ones, so not terrible... Anyway, yesterday I got:
The Novels of Jaran by Kate Elliot
Kiki Strikes: Inside the Shadow City by Kirsten Miller
Soldier from the War Returning by Thomas Childers
Ordinary Magic by Caitlen Rubino-Bradway
The Irresistible Fairy Tale - The Cultural and Social History of a Genre by Jack Zipes
Wisdom's Kiss by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
Unnatural Selection by Mara Hvistendahl
A Room of One's Own by Virigina Woolf
Millions Like Us by Virginia Nicholson
The Freedom Maze by Delia Sherman
Postcards from No Mans Land by Aidan Chambers
Rereading Women: Thirty Years of Exploring our Literary Tradition by Sandra M. Gilbert
Enchanted Hunters by Maria Tatar
Lud-in-the-Mist by Hope Mirrlees
And then I am participating in the Literature and War Readalong hosted at Beauty is a Sleeping Cat. My library didn't have any of the books I was looking for, so I was trying to find them elsewhere. I was happy to get them so cheap because I was going to get them anyway. I still can't find two of them, but I managed to get three!
Undertones of War by Edmund Blunden
Fear by Gabriel Chevallier
Toby's Room by Pat Barker
