Monthly Wrap-up: January 2016

January was quite a busy month, yet at the same time it seemed quite long. Perhaps because it is winter time. Not like we have been having a lot of winter weather though. The temperatures have been going up and down like crazy. What I would really like is a good old snow storm.

So lets look back on the first month of the year..
The last (saying goodbye to my childhood home) was so bittersweet.

I had a great month in reading though, which I contribute to the Bout of Book Read-a-thon. Here is my reading progress for January:

Total Books Read in January: 8

No 5 star books read this month unfortunately, but I did read some pretty interesting stories. I am pleased with the number of non-fiction books I have read this month.
