On Miles and February Books

This weekend, we're using frequent flier miles to go away for a couple of nights. (mom, dad, I didn't know we could do this when I was booking your hotel.... sorry!) I wanted us to be able to get away one last time before May, but couldn't figure out how to do it without overspending. Enter my Delta miles (which are unlikely to be enough for a flight), and a totally fancy hotel. I love hotels (I love predictability and indoor swimming pools) and I'm hoping the next couple of days will help me finally kick my annoying cold.

Here's my February booklist:
A Blessing Over Ashes by Adam Fifield
The New Frugality by Chris Farrell
The Good Husband of Zebra Drive by Alexander McCall Smith
The Myth of a Christian Religion by Gregory Boyd
Dreams of Trespass by Fatima Mernissi
The Noodle Maker by Ma Jian

I'm not expecting great things of every book I read: I find that while I was taught to be critical, it's proving pretty helpful to try to get a good sense of the author's intention.
