February in Review

What I Learned

Well, I have mentioned a couple times that I have basically been in a reading slump for like a year or more. I was delighted to find that reading can still click with me and it did in February. I am not sure what the rest of the year will bring, but I am very excited that I had one good reading month after such a long drought. Hopefully I can keep the excitement and momentum going!
