February is a pretty bleak time of year in Michigan, and until the last few days, March has been just as bad. Everyone in our family has been sick except the dog. Maybe all that rabbit poop she nibbles off the top of the snow has special vitamins in it.
I'm still reading Newbery medal winners - see The Newbery Project for my reviews of A Gathering of Days: A New England Girl's Journal, 1830-1832, by Joan A. Blos (1980 winner), and Holes, by Louis Sachar (1999 winner).
I've also enjoyed reading the most recent Carnival of Feminists, as well the Radical Michigan Blogging Carnival, and I recommend both to you.
