Reading Update: February 2018

Books & Coffee

I read a lot more in February than I did in January. In addition to reading books, I also continued to listen to audiobooks. I’m mainly reading ebooks, because I’ve been getting books from Netgalley, Kindle Unlimited, and Overdrive. I have a lot of books waiting to be read on my Kindle, and hope to catch up on those over the next couple of months. I read a few books toward my 2018 reading goals, but hope to read more books toward reading challenges in March.

For more info on what I’m reading, click over to my Goodreads account.
