The largest category ended up being Re-Read. As you can see, the books are doubled up on this shelf. Many of these books started out in the Keeper pile but ended up here because 1) I haven't read them in years or 2)I had too many Keepers.
On Goodreads I have settled into a habit of doing a short review of books that are 5 stars (what I loved about it) or 2 stars, 1 star or DNF (what I didn't enjoy). The majority of my reads are 3 stars (good book but nothing special) and I use 4 stars to reflect a book that I enjoyed enough to recommend or seek out other books by the author.

7 of out 20 is a really nice ratio of quality reads. Too bad that I had 6 2 star books on my list which is more than usual! It appears that my digital audiobook choices through my library are becoming slim pickings as they don't seem to be expanding their collection much. So I've started requesting books on CD that are on my reading shelves and bought a pair of Bluetooth headphones so I can play them on my laptop and be able to move about.
Speaking of moving about - I bought myself a Fitbit as an early birthday present. This long bitterly cold winter has done a number on my healthy habits and it's time to get back on track. My cross country skis and snowshoes have not been touched even though we have plenty of snow!
I started counting my Weight Watchers points again this week too. I'm not going to blog much about this but I will be including an updated picture as part of my Month in Review posts. Each glass gem represents 1 pound to reach my goal weight. A nice little visual that will greet me as I enter my kitchen. And, if I have to move my ironing board upstairs to get to 10,000 steps a day until it warms up I will!
Elsa thinks she will need an extra meal if that happens as she likes to keep an eye on me.
