The Books of February
Another month of reading great books!
- News of the World by Paulette Jiles
- The Swan Gondola by Timothy Schaffert
- House Divided by Ben Ames Williams
I only got through three books this month, a piddly amount especially after last month, and it was mainly because House Divided is 1536 pages long! I kid you not, it was the longest book I’ve ever read. It’s all about one big family during the Civil War. It was an interesting read, but slow. So very slow.
All the books this month were set either during or just after the Civil War. I didn’t plan that, it just happened. I do love reading about that era (I almost minored in Civil War history in college, after all), but normally I like to vary my reading a little more. However, it could very well have been a subconscious choice because I always feel so rebellious against weather and calendar in February.
Well, thankfully we’re now well into March. The rebellion is over, and the good books continue. Happy reading!
