Reading in Review: February

February flew by. Of course it's the shortest month, but I also was pretty busy. Here is my February monthly reading wrap up:

Books read: 6

I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings - Maya Angelou (1969)
The Namesake - Jumpha Lahiri (2003)
The Age of Innocence - Edith Wharton (1920- read-along with Bookworm Meets Bookworm)
Me Talk Pretty One Day - David Sedaris (2000)
Everything Is Illuminated - Jonathan Safran Foer (2002)
Black Water - Joyce Carol Oates (1992)

Favorite February read: The Namesake

Authors of color read: 33%

Non-fiction read: 33%

Non-American authors read: 0%

Books read that are older than me (published before 1985): 16%

My reading resolutions for 2011 were to read more worldly authors, more authors of color and more non-fiction. In February I failed to read anything by a non-American author, which is something I'll work on for March.

  1. I love these stats! I haven't done a great job reading older works and works by non-white, American authors either. Maybe March will go better for both of us.

  2. Red, March is going to be our month, I can feel it :)

  3. Looks like you had a great reading month. I only read British or American authors last February, and I hope my reading choices will be more diverse in March. :)
