The Off the Shelf Challenge: February

Here it is, the end of February, and I think I'm progressing nicely with The Off The Shelf Challenge 2012

Books read for the challenge in January:  4
Books read for the challenge in February: 5
Books read that were not part of the challenge: 3

I have a loose plan where I alternate reading books for the Challenge and books not for the Challenge. There are way too many new books coming out every month that I can't/won't wait to read. So far, so good.   

Standouts from the Challenge for February include:

Night Road by Kristin Hannah - this is the first Kristin Hannah book I read but it will definitely not be my last.

The Widow's War by Sally Gunning - historical fiction at its best.

Diamond Ruby by Joseph Wallace - it's like A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, only with baseball. Loved it!

I also usually mention a title or two from the Challenge over on the sidebar in case you're interested to see what I've read recently.

How about you all? What have you read this past month? What are you reading now?


  1. I'm reading a Susan Wiggs novel and CassaFire. : ) Alex is amazing.
    You're making progress on your challenge. Good job!

  2. Thanks, Emily. I've heard of Susan Wiggs but I don't think I've read anything by her. I hope you're enjoying your reads. :)

  3. Angela, I agree with you...but my bookshelves don't. :)

  4. I haven't read any of these books you mentioned, so I'm glad to have three more to add to my TBR list. Kudos on your Challenge progress! :)

  5. Julie - glad I can help keep your Kindle busy. :)

  6. Well done. My reading has been abysmal. Need to make more time!
