January Stats

I changed how I present my statistics each month so this will be a very long post but it's something I'm very interested in tracking.  I had a fantastic month-namely I read 41 books which is crazy.  I was shooting for 31 and I can't believe I managed to exceed that.  I think this was a combination of being on break from school, reading some really good books, and reading some really short books.  As I look back, I count 9 books under 200 pages.
I'm also thankful to my nookcolor for helping me increase my reading stats for ebooks.  I was worried about it being backlit but my eyes haven't hurt at all.  I've only read one book where color mattered but I have some others queued that will help me take full advantage of its color capabilities.
In February, I will continue reviewing books including some South Asian literature that I'm reading for a class, perhaps some movies, and I'm also participating in Allie at A Literary Odyssey's Oliver Twist readalong-I think there's still time to sign up if you want to join us!
