What’s on My Nightstand::January Wrap-Up

I’ve noticed something.  I tend to read a lot in January.  Last January I read a total of eight books, and while I haven’t gotten anywhere near that number so far this month, I’m in a nice little rhythm.  Maybe it’s just that I don’t read much at all in November and December, so reading anything at all in January is an improvement.  Whatever the explanation, I’ll take it.  🙂

So far this month I have read the following (links are to my reviews):

Right now I’m taking my time through When Children Love to Learn: A Practical Application of Charlotte Mason’s Philosophy for Today, a compilation of articles edited by Elaine Cooper.  I’m also enjoying The Hunger Games, and I have a feeling that given a little bit of spare (or not-so-spare) time, I’ll knock this one out in a hurry.  It’s good. 

I also managed to read through the book of Genesis this month, and while this is not that much of a feat really, I feel like I gained some new insights.  Currently I’m behind on my plan to read the Bible through in a year, but I refuse to be discouraged.  I’ll catch up! 

If February turns out to be half the month January has been for me, I should have a lot to report next month, too!

  1. Good job with the reading last month. Here is mine

  2. Yeah, you’ve managed to do a lot. I look forward to your review of The No. 1….

  3. You don’t need to rush to read Catching Fire, because it’s sort of a cliff-hanger, and book 3 doesn’t come out until August. So, if I hadn’t read it, I’d wait a bit, and then pick up book 3.

  4. Ooh, I had forgotten I wanted to read The Hunger Games. Great job with all of your reading in January. I think I tend to read more in winter just because I’m inside more.

  5. I love L. M. Montgomery. Hunger Games is on my TBR. 🙂

  6. Congratulations on your January list, Amy! I just finished my first book of the month today … *sigh*

  7. I also pick up the pace in January–it’s tough for me to get as much reading done in December. I’ve heard good things about the Hunger Games. Enjoy!

  8. I really, really liked When Children Love to Learn. Mmmm, probably time for a re-read.
