Challenge Update

For some reason this tends to keep me in check where I am with challenges, more than anything else. I look forward to seeing where I am each month compared to the last. I feel like it’s slow going in some aspects. My next challenge end date is February 28th. It’s a good challenge because it’s about the points more than how many books you read. So  far my points are low, and they will probably stay close to that, but at least it’s fun. I have a lot of challenges I haven’t even touched yet, so hopefully I will get something in each of them read by the end of the month.

January 2010 – REVIEW

Well, I think January was a successful reading month. I read as many books off my shelves as I bought, so that’s a success. I would like to change that in the following months by continuing to read more books that I own and buying less. We’ll see how the month progresses but so far I am doing good.
