February 2019 Report

Been a crazy month around here, thanks to Fahrenbruary. More than twice the views and visitors over last February. Which ain’t half bad. I have some other thoughts about that part of the month that I’ll probably share soon. But even without that, it’s been a decent month. I’d have liked to have read a couple of more books and written a couple of more posts — but I’m not complaining. The quality of what I read was great on the whole, which is the important thing. Still, looking forward to March, I’ve got some great reads coming up.

Anyway, here’s what happened here in February.

    1. 3.9 average? Dude, I’m coming over there and punching you in the nose and stealing all your rating karma! I’m SURE that will help me 😉

      I had a good laugh at the “Not Everyone is Special” book. Of course, I also imagined that I had written it and not whoever that guy is. I doubt it is remotely what I imagine it to be…

      • After your Feb., I wouldn’t blame you for that.

        Not Everyone is Special is an interesting book — I’m still deciding exactly what I want to say about it. It’s a short story collection, a bunch of “not special” protagonists. Some really good writing, just not sure if it was used for anything worthwhile. Well, some of it is, maybe all of it, but there are degrees of worthwhile. Yeah, clearly I’m still thinking about it… 🙂

        • You ALWAYS keep on thinking about it. That is one thing that I’ve been noticing about your reviews lately. You don’t just inhale your books. I’ve been wondering if it has to do with some of WHAT you read. You read a decent amount of non-fiction and theology based books and it seems that your reading of those carries over into your fiction.

        • That is the hope anyway, glad it shows through. Part of the reason I started blogging (rather than just irregularly posting goodreads reviews) was to force myself not to inhale.
