Monthly Wrap-Up : January 2012

Number of Books Read per Month:

I failed to meet the target I’d set for the number of books read per month. This was due to the length of the books read. But this means I have to try and catch up in the coming months.

List of the Books Read:

  • The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan
  • The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan
  • The Dragon Reborn by Robert Jordan
  • The Shadow Rising by Robert Jordan
  • The Fires of Heaven by Robert Jordan
  • Lord of Chaos by Robert Jordan


I've signed up for 5 challenges for 2012.

But I've only started reading books for 2 of those challenges.

Since I've already met my target for the Tea & Books Challenge, I've decided to upgrade to the next level of the challenge.

Monthly book expenses :

I failed to adhere to the book budget I had set for myself and added a number of books to my to-be-read pile this month. So, I need to spend less next month.

Summary :

Overall, January 2012 could have been better, but I didn't do too bad either. I missed a number of the targets I had set for myself at the beginning of the year, but nothing I can't catch up on yet.


  1. Looks like you're well on your way. Have you tried paperbackswap.Com? All you pay for is the postage when you send your books out and get a credit for those.

    1. I haven't yet ... but it sounds promising. Thanks for the tip!

  2. I need to add that last thing in my round=up! I did barely (meaning by a dollar) stay in my book/video budget. It was close though!

  3. I came across the Outdo Yourself challenge earlier last month but forgot to sign up. Will do it now!

    And hey, six books in a month is pretty good progress. Keep it up! :)

    1. Thanks, but I can't envying those of you who can do more. LOL.
