Let me first say that the lateness of this review has nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that Rachel took a two-book lead on me.
So, anyway, here’s the February split:
|Jason Read:||Rachel Read:|
|Prince Caspian||Small Great Things|
|The Voyage of the Dawn Treader||Shepherding a Child’s Heart|
|The Silver Chair||Home: A Memoir of My Early Years|
|American Gods||The Book Thief|
|Nothing to Prove|
|6 Rainier Drive|
Yes, that’s right; the shortest month has already started to shake out the field. I was hoping that she would distance herself more slowly than this, y’know, to keep it interesting. If she continues to best me by two books a month, she’ll have an insurmountable lead by May. By September, she can just take the rest of the year off and binge-watch old seasons of Survivor; there’s no way I could catch her.
My only hope is that this month was an anomaly, instead of the anomaly being in January, the month I was actually able to keep up with her. I know where I would put my money. And I would, except Vegas wouldn’t give me odds.
