January Reading Wrap-up

My reading year is off to a good start with 10 books read in January from a variety of genres.  I was able to cover some categories from my challenges as well as read on a whim.  Here are the genres I read from:

Mystery: 3
Historical fiction: 2
Romantic Comedy: 1
Classics: 1
Non-fiction: 1
Thriller/Suspense: 2

My favorites were:

Death on the Nile (Hercule Poirot, #17)

Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie

 The House on Foster Hill

The majority of my reading came from the library, which is typical for me.  Somehow, when I buy a book for my own shelves, that virtually guarantees I won't read it.  The allure of roaming a building full of books, pulling books off the shelf to look at and bringing home whatever I want for free wins out over selecting a book from my own shelves.  I have become very intentional with my book buying and would like to cultivate the habit of reading my new purchases before buying more.  Except for the ones that I have already read and would just like a copy of to reread at a future date or the ones that I am adding to a collection or the ones I just don't feel like reading right now...  So you see the problem I run into.  I purchased several new books in December and received some for Christmas.  I have not read any of them yet and would like to read at least one in the month of February.

Also in February I would like to read a biography or memoir and a children's book.  Other than that, I hope to cover some more categories from my challenges as well as read serendipitously.

How was your January reading?  What do you hope to read in February?
