It has been awhile since I've posted. Time is getting away from me. I turned around and it's March 13th. February was a great month mad-money-wise until Borders filed for BK and the store on lower Broadway was one slated to close. I spent my whole $100 there. To further my reading goals (and taking a back step on my decluttering, but rationalized since 'classics'), I bought book two more of the Asian Saga written by James Clavell: Gai-Jin and Tai-Pan. If you haven't read it, I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend "Shogun" - book one. It is a daunting 1,200 pages, but I have to say, as I neared the end, I stalled finishing bc I wished there were 300 more. It is also my father's and Mr. Olive's favorite book. My other resolution to read 11 books - I'm on book 2 and I chose "New Moon", which I'm liking much better than "Twilight".
