February reading recap

Between running and watching the Olympics, I found some time to read in February.

I finished two books in February at a total of 1,068 pages. That brings the yearly total to five books and 2,294 pages, which is ahead of the two books and 1,033 pages I'd read by the end of February 2009. I'll take it.

So what I'd read between my Olympic watching marathons? Take a look:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos

I've read the final installment of the Harry Potter series before. I devoured it in something like 3 days when it first was released. But I've read all of the other books in the series a couple of times and wanted to go back and read the last chapter again. And I took my time this time. As in it almost took me all month. But I enjoyed getting to read it again. Love Walked In was some fluff recommended by a friend. But good fluff. The kind of fluff I needed post-Olympics.

Today was a cross training day so I just hopped on the bike for 15 miles. I think my legs were thanking me for that decision. They were grumbling really loudly this morning when I got out of bed. Oops!

Love Harry Potter! I did the same as you, read the last one so quickly. I think I may start over at the beginning and enjoy them for a second time.
