  1. Wow, 10 books in one month! That is impressive! I managed…zero books! But I finished off two today on the first day of February so it kind of makes up for it (I’m still aiming for 52 books this year so I am a little behind still).
    Out of curiosity, is At The Water’s Edge by Sara Gruen a new book? I haven’t heard of that one before. I really liked Water For Elephants, and I liked the concept of Ape House although I never managed to read it (I moved overseas and the book is among hundreds of others locked away on the other side of the world…sigh).
    I really need to make myself read more, so many people are off to such a good start on their reading goals! 🙂

    • At the Water’s Edge is a new book that will be released March 31st. I got an advanced copy through NetGalley. My goal for this year is 75 books so I am a bit ahead of schedule. Sometimes I get into a reading slump so I like to be ahead in case one of those sneaks up on me. 🙂

      • Ahhh, that makes sense now about the book! Mind you I’ve never been as good at staying up to date with book releases as I have been with music and movie releases for some odd reason.
        Also, that is a very clever idea, pre-empting the reading slump. I’m coming out of a year long slump haha, so it’s more a matter of intervention than prevention in my case I think! 😛
