February Summary and Plans for March

February has been a very enjoyable reading month for me. I’ve kept to my strict abandonment policy and been rewarded with one good book after another.

Plans for March

I’m going to finish The Half Brother, an amazing Norwegian book, which has been dominating my February reading time because it contains 750 pages of tiny type. I also hope to read most of these:

A Death in the Family by Karl Ove Knausgaard

The Golden Scales by Parker Bilal

The Great Singapore Penis Panic by Scott Mendelson

The Boy Who Fell To Earth by Kathy Lette

Death in Breslau by Marek Krajewski
