Sunday Salon 6 II 11 - January, a month in review


Good morning, fellow Salon Members! It's another cold day here, so a perfect opportunity to hunker down with a cuppa and a good book!

My reading goal for this year is 120 books - 10 a month. I missed my goal in January by 1 book, and I've just finished my first book for February, so I need to get reading or I'm going to be so far behind in only the second month of the year that I'll never get caught up!

What I read in January:
Icons: The DC Comics and Wildstorm Art of Jim Lee by Jim Lee & Bill Baker
The Hunting of the Snark: An Agony in Eight Fits Lewis Carroll, illustrated by Mahendra Singh
Skellig by David Almond
Pibgorn: The Girl in the Coffee Cup by Brooke McEldowney
Pibgorn and the Poltergeist in the Piano by Brooke McEldowney
Pibgorn and the Borgia Cantus by Brooke McEldowney
Grandville by Bryan Talbot
Dr. Grordbort Presents: Victory by Greg Broadmore
Boneshaker by Cherie Priest
Cherie Priest's Boneshaker topped out my month as my favorite book, by far. It's just so Steampunkilicious!

I've got a nice selection of books to get me through February, including Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series, the follow up to Bonshaker titled Dreadnought, a couple of my LibraryThing SantaThing gifts The Giver and The Tower, The Zoo and The Tortoise. From there, I'll just peruse my shelves until something strikes my fancy to read.

So, until next Sunday, stay warm and happy reading!!

120 books in a year! Wow. That's an impressive target! Good luck :) Look forward to reading more about how you're doing as the year progresses.
