January 2014 Update

It's been a good month for my reading; some incredible books have been read. I've also made a pretty good start on my general book challenge, having read 33 books throughout the month. This puts me 17 books ahead of schedule apparently, which I'm pretty chuffed about. 
Less impressive is the headway I've made into my work based challenge.... I've not read anything towards this at all I'm afraid. However I do still have 11 months to go, so hardly a failure just yet. 

Throughout the month I have purchased or been sent 64 books, which is slightly crazy. I have read 17 of the books I've acquired this month, and will work my way through the rest given time. 
It is probably time to start looking for another bookcase......
