February's Reading Challenge Review

February was an exciting reading month.

I completed 2 challenges. Yep, TWO! There was a small celebration including a happy dance then I did what any reading challenge addict would do two months into a new year, I increased the quota for those two challenges. Fun times.

I think my favourite read (while listen it was an audio book) was Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. I am really enjoying The Hunger Games and looking forward the the conclusion. Primal by Mark Batterson was also great. The tag line is "A Quest for the Lost Soul of Christianity." I liked his refreshing thoughts that allowed me to rediscover truth I know in a new light.
