2016 Read My Books

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

The 2016 Read My Books Challenge is officially over!  It’s been a pretty good year of reading and I hope you were all able to read enough of your own books to make a good dent in your TBR even if you weren’t able to complete the challenge.  So this is your last chance to get one more entry for the drawing!  I will be choosing the winner in two weeks to give people time to post and link up their updates.  And just a reminder of the prize… One winner will receive $30 to spend at Book Depository as long as their ship to your country.  Good luck to all participants!

Month In Review: January 2016

monthinreview

It’s so hard to believe that January is almost over.  I’ve read and listened to some great books this past month.  Unfortunately towards the end here I have hit a bit of a reading slump.  I’ve been more in the mood to binge watch shows on Netflix (Parenthood and Parks & Rec).  I know there are still a few more days left in the month but I really don’t see myself finishing any more books so I’m content to post my Month In Review early.  Here is a look at how my reading went this month:

# Books Read in January: 14 (including 6 audiobooks)

# Books Read in 2016: 14

# Books Towards Goodreads Goal: 14/110
