So February kind of sucked, but I think I've found my feet again and am back to my daily book grind (I spend months trying to figure out a name for my blog that combined books and coffee before settling on the one I have instead, and now I toss that phrase out randomly. Geez.) Internet access is a bit more limited than it was, so you may note crazy book dumps until that is settled, as a heads up (expect one after this post, actually--I'm way behind in terms of updating here!).


I did manage to find a crop of very excellent books, and I am not even going to update all of the ones I have started I don't think, because it is (as seen above) a very scary number, and I have no idea how many of them I will keep. I'll probably update as I get further into them or finish them, because I don't even want to try to input all of that if I can get out of it. I'm lazy, and I'm perfectly okay with admitting this. :x


Finally broke down and bought Saga and may have accidentally read the entire thing straight through while letting my dinner get cold. I don't regret it. I'm going to be hunting down the rest as well, and quite possibly buying physical copies (though my Fire did well honestly and I got a heck of a deal). I'm remarkably impressed, and I regret that it took me so long to get around to it.


How did everyone else's February go? Did that extra day help any? Find anything ridiculously fabulous? Start a terrifying number of books? Discover you have a taste for superlatives and you can't quit using them?
