February Book Round-Up

March 3, 2011

Here are the books that Jaye, Dad and I read in February. February is short. Nonfiction is long. I’m just saying.

Dad: 5

Tennessee, Off the Beaten- Tim O’Brien. Mom and Dad are planning a vacation!

Christopher’s Ghost- Charles McGarry. “First I’ve read by McGarry, who’s done a bunch of spy thrillers. Pretty good.”

Philistines at the Hedgerows- Steven Gaines.    “Life among the rich and
ill-behaved on the South Fork”

Hold Tight- Harlan Coben.

God of the Hive- Laurie King. “Faster paced than the usual Mary Russel.”

Elizabeth’s list. I made it to 20 books! Woo! 8 of which I read in February. I read nonfiction much more slowly.
