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..
- On January 2nd I celebrated 1 year blogging!
- I started doing regular weekly wrap-ups on Sundays.
- Had my first book haul of the year.
- I participated in Bout Of Books 15.
- Said goodbye to my childhood home.
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.
