I still don’t think I’ve posted my 2023 wrap-up to Instagram. And I certainly didn’t post my January wrap-up. Why? Because we sold our condo last month (moving/closing were this past week) and life has been absolute chaos. Thank goodness for audiobooks!

February goal:

I’ll commit to 3 books for February, including the audiobook that’s already 68% complete. I’m not even committing to the book club choice, though I will read it at some point.

What I read:


Note: I quit linking titles to that big site that funds the rich dude and his space wars with other rich dudes. I’ve linked to Goodreads, but if you’re looking to support independent bookstores, my favorite local shop is Old Town Books (they ship!), and you can support my favorite podcast and a local shop of your choosing through their Bookshop.org link at KickBezosInTheBalls.org. And you can never go wrong with your local library!

Reading Goals:

1. Read 36 books I finished 2 books toward my Goodreads Challenge and I’m 1 book behind.

  • Audiobooks: 3
  • Kindle: 2
  • Physical books: 0

2. Decrease my TBR – 

* I purged a LOT of books when we moved, so I’ll need to update this once we unpack at some future date.

3. Read 24 minutes per day – I’m on Day 899 of my reading streak.

So the move definitely affected my reading. I listened to at least 24 minutes of an audiobook every day, but yesterday was the first day I’ve picked up a book (well, my Kindle) in more than a month. 

I’ll commit to 3 books for March, including Patrick Stewart’s audiobook that is soooooooo long (but good). I did not finish the book club choice for the last meeting, but I’m reading it now. Here’s hoping I can get caught up soon!
