OK, once again, I will set my goal at 65 (for consistency). I will count books registered by other BC'ers. I'll be counting books that I either read or choose to pass along unfinished, or dupes - books that come into my hands that I've read in the past. I'll also continue my tradition of having a "naughty" ticker, for books I read that aren't BookCrossing-registered books. I find that helps me to work on my BC books, or at least find a balance.
Thanks for continuing this group!

1. David Copperfield
2. The Red Pony
3. The Worst Day of My Life, So Far

Oops - forgot to report in! Now reading The Worst Day of My Life, So Far by M. A. Harper. Registered by UnwrittenLibra.
>10 Nataliec7: Thanks, Nataliec7! Not so sure on this one. The protagonist is so angry, it kind of puts me off.
>11 iwillrejoice: I usually can tolerate angry protagonists, but I have a harder time with whiny protagonists.
Haha! I like your "naughty" books! I register all my books (except those of others and library books so I actually read very few non-BC-registered books. David Copperfield is such a l-o-n-g book. I read it when I was in high school. Mostly I don't read such long books any more. :D
Seems like you're making good progress so far in February. Unfortunately, I'm being distracted by new books myself.
Now reading Before Your Dog Can Eat Your Homework, First You Have to Do It by John O'Hurley. Registered by booklady331.
Now reading: The Yokota Officers' Club by Sarah Bird. One of mine. Although, this is weird. It has a label from "bookproject.org" (now apparently defunct) which seems very similar to BookCrossing. Have you ever heard of it?
>24 iwillrejoice: I've never heard of it either. I wonder if it was a precursor of BookCrossing.
>29 mathgirl40: Dunno. Apparently it was for books with a cause. Social injustice, or whatever. The site seemed pretty bare bones, from what I could see on the wayback machine. Guess it just didn't make it.
I've always liked the Hamish Macbeth series but I've never read any other M. C. Beaton books. I'll have to try some of the ones she writes as Marion Chesney.
