February Stats

I had another pretty good month (not quite as good as January but still...) reading 27 books!  I didn't do as well on some of my challenges as I would have liked but I'm progressing nicely on the Contemps and I will work harder on the others in the future because I definitely want to complete all of them.  I did have a slump between February 14-18 but I recovered.

As I worked on my review archives this weekend, I noticed that they seemed somewhat unwieldy because I have now reviewed quite a lot of books.  If you have a chance, I'd love to know what you think of them and how you prefer to search for reviews on someone's site.  Do you like author or title? Would a series page be helpful? Since I review many different genres, would a page for each genre be helpful? Any recommendations would be appreciated.

In March, I will continue reviewing books including some South Asian literature that I'm reading for a class and lots of YA.  Plus after having so much fun with Oliver Twist, I'm also participating in Allie at A Literary Odyssey's The Three Musketeers Readalong-I think there's still time to sign up if you want to join us!

  1. Wow, great stats! I like your review archives as they are. It's easy to search for authors/titles this way. It's my favourite way to just keep things as simple as possible.
