January Wrap-up 2010

I feel like I was just writing my wrap-up post for January 2009! Where does time go? I remember when I was a child time seemed to crawl by, but nowadays I feel like things go by much too fast. January was not a spectacular reading month. I read 20 books, but most of them were graphic novels.

3rd Canadian Reading Challenge:
Pyongyang: A Journey in North Korea by Guy Delisle

Japanese Reading Challenge:
This challenge wrapped up yesterday. I had hoped to read more, but my library didn't have a lot of Japanese books. I read two, though, so I am happy.
1. Obsasan by Joy Kogawa
2. Asleep by Banana Yoshimoto
I am happy that I joined in! Many thanks to Bellezza for hosting this challenge.

Women Unbound:
I have read books that could work for this challenge, but I still want to try and read non-fiction and I haven't done very well with that yet. We will see what happens. I might change my mind and include fiction if my non-fiction reading doesn't pick up.

The Christy Award Challenge:
Nothing for this one, either! I need to get cracking!

Terry Pratchett Reading Challenge:
Nothing this month, either...

Essay Reading Challenge:
Technically I have read essays, but since it is a book I am going to wait until I read the last few pages before counting them. Tune in February for that.

GLBT Reading Challenge:
Another challenge I didn't read anything for! My challenges are off to a bad start...

Flashback Reading Challenge:
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle
