I think I may have mentioned it before, but making my end of the year post, and compiling all those stats, is one of my favourite things about book blogging. I’ve toyed with the idea of doing the same after each month, but I thought that maybe that would be a little too much. Then I started seeing other bloggers doing it, so I figured that I’m not alone in my love of stats.

In January I read twenty-three books, which is great, because it means I met my goal of an average of four books/week. Let’s see if I can keep it up for the rest of the year (I hope so!). January is usually my best reading month, in terms of the number of books, but this is the first year in a while that the majority of books read in January hasn’t been manga or graphic novels.
