January was a good reading month for me, three days of holidays helped. Despite reading seven books, I feel guilty for having checked out enormous amounts of books from the library that I didn´t read. Oh well, here´s the complete list, I had to return some books before snapping the picture (very inconvinient 😉 ):
1.) So Many Books, So Little Time (Sara Nelson)
2.) The Eyre Affair (Jasper Fforde)
3.) The Female of the Species (Joyce Carol Oates)
4.) China Men (Maxine Hong Kingston)
5.) Galatea 2.2 (Richard Powers)
6.) Aunts aren´t Gentlemen (P.G. Wodehouse)
7.) The Night Watch (Sarah Waters)
I think I´m pretty satisfied with the list. The books I´ve read this month were nicely diverse ( although I´m acutely aware of the lacking classics, it´s turning into a problem!). Number 1 and 2 I read for the 2010 Bibliophilic Books Challenge, number 3 shows my new obsession with Joyce Carol Oates, 4 and 5 were books for uni, I´m slowly going through the Jeeves and Wooster series (6), and (7) shows that sometimes 500 pages are quicker to read than 150. And I´ve reviewed 5 out of 7 books, which is a kind of resolution I´ve made this year.
How was your reading month? Success or let-down?
