UPDATE: February Books

The weather is: actually pleasant this year. I've been on the road several weekends attending the children's sporting events and the good weather makes travel so relaxing - clear, dry highways with no chance of snow. Perfect!

I am listening to: I just finished listening to Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town by Stephen Leacock, famous Canadian humourist.

Other February audiobooks were:

Dead Wake by Erik Larson
Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff
A Mountain Story by Lori Lansen

best audiobook of the month: A Mountain Story

I am watching: Over and over, this video clip of my son hitting an amazing overtime basketball shot. I tried to embed the video but that appears to be beyond my capabilities.
I am reading: Finishing up Heirs and Graces by Rhys Bowen. Other books read in February include:

9. Dead Wake - Erik Larson (audiobook)
10. Undone - Karin Slaughter
11. The Frozen Thames - Helen Humphreys
12. United We Stand - Eric Walters
