February 2012 Reading Wrap-Up

I think I might FINALLY be coming out of my pregnancy reading slump. Through the middle of February things were still very, very slow, but in the last 10 days of the month, my reading suddenly picked up (AND I got caught up on my unwritten reviews – amazing!). By the end of the month, I finished a respectable 16 books. 10 were print or ebooks, for a total of 3200 pages and 6 were audiobooks, adding up to about 40 hours of listening time, helped out by a couple of Saturdays of packing up and cleaning our condo.

Although my final numbers are similar to those in January, I read a much better mix of books. This month I had mysteries, general fiction, historical fiction, nonfiction… no longer primarily Agatha Christies and cozies, which pleases me immensely.
