    Wow, you have all been busy reading! Our list would be a lot shorter, but we have really enjoyed reading My Side of the Mountain and A Nest for Celeste together. Very cozy books for February!

    Good job! We had a slow reading month. I think you guys read more than us for sure! Moving to a new place really mixes things up for a long while. We've been in the new place for three months now and things still don't feel back to normal. Have fun reading for the next month!! :)

    I didn't keep track this month, BUT I did start recording the books we're reading and the ones we've read over the past few months. I intend to actually start recording our 100 count in the month of April. Anyway, we've been reading and we're back to our evening readings before bedtime. Are you saying "huh" at me yet?
