January 2011 Wrap Up!

January is over already? How did this happen? It's been a busy month for me. My work life has gone beyond insane, hence why I can't believe January is over already, I barely remember it. I had a goal of reading at least 10 books for the month, I wanted to beat by books read during NaJuReMoNoMo, but I only managed 8 books. I'm still happy with that amount (especially consid
ering busy work life equals to being so tired when I get home, I'm asleep by 9). So 8 books is g
reat feat for me. This month I've discovered I really enjoy Stargate books (based of the hit TV s
how). They are a way I can still read when I'm exhausted, because they are easy, easy reads, but they ar
e also well done.

The Books

So I read 8 books this month. My favourite was Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, closely followed by The Birth House and Industrial Magic. My least favourite was Ri
sing.



The Challenges

It's only been a month, so I'm doing pretty well for challenges. I completed NaJuReMoNoMo Challenge, reading 8 books. I may not have reached my personal goal, but I still did pretty good. I can't say how I'm dong for challenges, as I just started in them. But progress is being made on the
m, so that's a good thing. And notice, I'm in half as many challenges as last year! Go me!



Countries Visited

New year, new map. This year I'm only going to list the countries I visited during this year. Although some places are going to be hard, as they aren't even on this planet. One is not even in this galaxy. Universe map might be what I need? So I visited America, Canada, Scotland. As well as a planet out of this solar system. And a few planets throughout the Pegasus Galaxy. Not a bad month for travels through reading. ;)
