It’s time to update my Reading Map! This is like a road map of my reading journey. Each month I do a ‘check-up’ to help me see what I’ve accomplished towards my reading goals and to help me see what needs to be done next.
This year I plan to do a lot more ‘free range’ reading, working to empty my shelf of books I’ve been meaning to read, but feeling free to grab whatever I’m in the mood for at the time. In addition, if I happen to come across something at the library that looks interesting, I’m giving myself the freedom to push something off my list and pick up that tempting library book! The only books I will feel compelled to read are book club selections and books I am committed to reading for review purposes.
Here is a summary of my February reading.
Completed From My List
- The Bishop’s Wife by Mette Ivie Harrison
- The Ocean At The End Of The Lane by Neil Gaiman
- Sing In The Morning, Cry At Night by Barbara J Taylor
- The Long and Far Away Gone by Lou Berney
- The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson
Free Range Reading
- Some Luck By Jane Smiley
Nothing….I’m planning my next good read!
My reading map for March appears below. It’s a pretty long list but I really don’t expect to read them all in March. Four of the books are ebooks on reserve at the library and look like they will be coming in in the next 2-4 weeks. Let’s hope not all at once! If they do, chances are very good I won’t get them all read without going back on the reserve list. In addition, I will be spending a week visiting at the beach, so I will throw a few paperbacks from my Mount TBR challenge list into the bag. I really don’t like to carry my iPad around sand and water! So a lot of this will be free-range reading! Fun!

Do you have a ‘map’. If so, share it below in the comments. Maybe I’ll see something I want to add to my list! And if you want to see what other bloggers have planned, check out Reading Queue, hosted by Book Tasty and Books: A True Story. This is a monthly meme similar to my Reading Map feature, in that bloggers share their reading plans for the month. Happy reading!
