Month in Review: January 2017

How is it that January is already over? This month passed rather quickly, but it was a busy month! I'm in the middle of training for a BIG walk - I'm doing the Challege Walk MS in Savannah, GA the first weekend in March - it's a three-day, 50 mile walk. Since I'm not really a music fan, I tend to listen to audio books when I walk, so during my long training walks, I've gotten in lots of audio-time! We are in the process of setting up a home office in the small room upstairs - this is something we have been saying we would do forever! I found a desk set at IKEA and now I just have to decide on a paint color - there's a reason why every other room in my house is ivory ;)

Here are my reading stats for January!

*Kathyrn over at The Book Date has created a Month in Review meme for those who put together these monthly posts. From now on, I'll be linking my post up each month...Thanks Kathryn for putting this meme together!!!



  1. Congrats on a great month! I also read 16 this month...and I just downloaded Behind Her Eyes and Right Behind You.

    I enjoyed A Week at the Lake.

    Have a great February!

  2. Dang girl, great reading month!! I love audio books for all kind of things, cooking, cleaning, getting dressed/makeup. I much prefer listening over TV.
    Good luck training, and I love Savannah, the Book Festival is in two and a half weeks....we are going back!

  3. Mmm those audiobooks sure help boost the stats. I have been on the sideline about The Shadow Sister as I didn't like the narrator in one of the others. However seeing you liked it I think I will go the audio way.

  4. Great reading month! Just started Right Behind You on audio. Hope the training is going well. Have a great month of reading.
