These are only the first twelve I've read this month. Of those twelve only five are non-fiction books. I am reading the sixth one now. 

That means I will have covered all of my goals save one I haven't started the history book yet and with only a few days remaining of the month I don't know if I will get to it this month. 

Also the political book, I was unable to finish, the writer and I do not agree as to the interpretation of some of the quotes and I found it distressing how negative he seemed to be. 

Of the others, I found "The Homemade Housewife" useful and will be implementing some of her suggestions. In reading "Mindfulness" I discovered that I already approach life in a fairly mindful way and I will continue to practice some of the exercises she included. I recommend both of these books to you as useful in everyday life.

I started several new series this month as I have completed most of the ones I have been reading. I'm drifting in the no-man's land between fantasy and cozy mysteries and enjoying it so far

February's Reading List

1) Kings and Castles by Marc Morris is the book I've chosen to read for History in February
2) The Three Roosevelts by James MacGregor Burns and Susan Dunn is the book I've chosen for Politics
3) The Song of Achilles by Madeline Millar is a modern interpretation of an old classic but I found while reading Beowulf that I prefer a modern version.
4) The Destoying Angel by Shirley Turner is the Autobiography choice of the month.
Kings and Castles by [Morris, Marc] The Three Roosevelts: Patrician Leaders Who Transformed America by [Burns, James MacGregor] The Song of Achilles: A Novel by [Miller, Madeline] The Destroying Angel: A Blistering Story of Surviving and Overcoming Abuse by [Turner, Shirley]

The self-help topic for February is about body positive and body acceptance methods. The books on my reading list for them will be at Pinterest in Body Positive Reading and in Februaries Self Help.

Fiction-wise I am not sure what I'll be reading but so far I have three new series to follow "The Triplet Witch Trilogy", "Works Like Magick" and "Vintage Magick Mystery". Along with those I have several other series I'm in the middle of. I think I may have to give the series I'm reading a page to themselves so if you are interested you can read them too. I often use my books as the basis for a post.

I know this post is getting long but I wanted to remind you that I read "Simple Abundance" every day and am still working my way through "The 7 Habits" and if you read nothing else I list here read one or both of these. They have proven themselves to be very useful in my daily life
