Happy Leap Day!

Leap Year on Amazon
Today is Leap Day!

According to Irish tradition, because of a deal St. Bridget struck with St. Patrick, on this day a woman can propose marriage to a man. If he refuses he is obliged to buy her a silk dress. The movie Leap Year is a romantic comedy where Amy Adams decides to follow this tradition. It's a cute, lighthearted movie.

February in Review

To recap our February here at the Book Horde, we reviewed 10 books, including two banned ones, made 3 book lists, said goodbye to Harper Lee and Umberto Eco, and we talked about the censorship in social media.

For easy reference, the books we reviewed were, in non-fiction:
A Time for Truth by Ted Cruz
Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates by Brian Kilmeade
Scalia Dissents by Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia
Triumph: The Untold Story of Jesse Owens and Hitler's Olympics by Jeremy Schaap
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo

in fiction:
Duty by Rachel Rossano
Eifelheim by Michael Flynn
Chasing Freedom by Marina Fontaine

and in banned books:
CTRL ALT Revolt! Nick Cole
Sex Trouble Robert Stacy McCain

Also, our lists were about:
Books for Lent
Romantic Movies that Were Books
Books About Living in the Past

Tomorrow we are going to start off March with a great book review that will be a steal of a deal!
