January round-up

Last January I managed to read 10 books, a lot more than I read on a typical month. Did I start this year with a similar bang? Yes and no. I did read 12 books and liked all of them, but on blogging front it was a bit quiet, because of my new job, also we had wonderful guests over for two weekends in a row. When push comes to shove and I have to chose between reading or writing, reading usually wins. And it was fun. I should get a bit more on track with blogging over next few weeks, so don’t give up hope yet! There will be more things to put you to sleep.

A lot of crime, some non-fiction and half of the books in Polish, at this rate I won’t be able to stick to my new year’s resolution of one Polish book a month because I’ll run out of my stash 😉

One thought on “January round-up

  1. I choose reading over writing as well! 🙂 I’m hoping to get back in the blogging groove myself. Last month was a rough one for my concentration. 12 books is a great number! Of your list I’ve only read A Visit From the Good Squad – that’s a good one!
