I finished 5 books in January, 4 of which were for challenges and all of them moved with us from England so they've been in the stacks for at least a year and a half. Since I only plan to keep one of them, that also frees up a very small amount of shelf space! Positive progress indeed!
Two of them (Roxanna Slade, The Fall of Light) were for the From the Stacks Challenge, which ended this month, and which I managed to finish with a few days to spare. Yay!
Another two of them (Fahrenheit 451, Gigi and The Cat) were for the Classics Challenge. I'm currently reading The Good Earth which is book number 3.
I'm also counting The Good Earth for the TBR Challenge so I'm slightly behind but not terribly I think, and I hope to read a 2nd book from my list in February.
For the Chunkster Challenge, umm..nothing yet, but I have The Makioka Sisters on deck for February.
And that leaves the O'Canada Challenge, and the Japan Challenge. So far no progress in either of those but since The Makioka Sisters qualifies as Classic, Japan, and Chunkster, it'll be 3 birds with one stone, as it were. Leaving something Canadian, or two. I guess I'll just have to see where my mood takes me.
Also on deck for February:
