January was a great reading month for me and I finished nine books but February was definitely a slower month. I only finished four books (one of those a graphic novel). But, what’s really important for me is that I feel like my reading has been a bit more inclusive.
So far, I’ve been reading more short stories and poetry. I try to read one short story and/or one poem a week. And, along with the usual fiction reads, I’ve also read a couple of graphic novels, a memoir, two books in translation, some mysteries and even a science fiction book. I hope this trend continues.
Regarding challenges, I did finish the Japanese Reading Challenge and I’ve made a small dent into the 9 for 09 Reading Challenge. I’m still reading the first book in the Latin American Reading Challenge, but all the others are just waiting for me to dive in. Well, there’s still plenty of time so we’ll see what happens.
Right now I’m still finishing some books I started in February and after that so many books from my shelves look tempting who knows what March will bring.
How about you? How’s your reading going so far this year?
