2014 Reading Update: January

Do you set goals for your year as far as reading goes? For the past few years, I’ve set a goal of the number of books that I would read in a given year and, this year, I’ve joined the Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge. Goodreads is great at helping me keep track, but I thought I’d try to do monthly posts to keep up-to-date, as well.

First, the bummer news: Books I Did Not Finish
