January 2012 ReCap...

January 2012 Update

It was a not a great reading month for me.  Typically, between all my other activities and goings on, I can read minimum one book a week.  Some months are better and some are worse. But, on average, 50-60 books a year is my norm.

But January 2012 held a couple of zingers!

First, I discovered the loss of a dear old friend. This, quite frankly, ruined two weeks for me. I could barely think of anything else for days.

Then, a surprise wedding...mine! This ate up at least another week and a half. So, in theory, I should have finished 1/2 a book give or take. I finished two. So I'm ahead of the game, right?

Alright, two books in a month is ridiculously little. But I'm already well into my second of February, so I am trying to make up for the slow month. Hopefully by year's end I will be able to catch up and maybe surpass last year's numbers (which was, admittedly, a low count as well). Too much life and not enough reading!

This month I read:

Total Read: 2
Adult: 2
YA/children's: 0
