Challenges
One month in the new challenge year down and I think I did pretty darn good.  I do find it interesting that I didn't read more for the Off the Shelf challenge, considering normally the only books I borrow are audio books. However, I'm not considering review books for this one and I read several of those in January.

Hi! I'm looking for a series (or a good thick read) or two to dig into. Any suggestions? :) When work is crazy like it has been lately, the only way I can get my mind to wind down is to read before bed.

Stepfordmomto2 - Thanks! I think I'm a bit crazy for the challenges, but I do love them. I sure did start the year off with a bang didn't I?

Alison - I still need to respond to your email!!! Yikes! I need to do that..and see what type of books you do like to read so I can recommend something you would hopefully like it.

Yikes I only read 4 books in Jan! Ok, I have no excuse now since we are iced off school for a week.

Way to go on your list & thanks for inspiring me to get back on the wagon!
