For a while, I was doing posts at the beginning of the month about what I was planning to read. Since planning doesn’t always work that well for me, I decided to join in the ranks of those who post what they did read during the previous month at the beginning of a new month.

January was a pretty dismal reading month. It started off really well with 3 books read in the first couple of days while I was still on holiday vacation. Since then, I’ve only finished 2 more books, though, and I haven’t reviewed any of them (although I am at least halfway done with one review). That’s why I started Miles Errant – it’s huge so I was hoping to be caught up by the time I was done reading it.

January Reading:

1. Jhereg by Steven Brust
2. Yendi by Steven Brust
3. Teckla by Steven Brust
4. Twilight of Avalon by Anna Elliott
Borders of Infinity by Lois McMaster Bujold (not including this novella toward my total books read since it was originally published in another collection instead of as a separate book)
5. Brothers In Arms by Lois McMaster Bujold

Favorite January book: I think I’m going to have to go with Jhereg since I can’t count Mirror Dance yet. Last night I stayed up really late because I “just had to read one more chapter.” I had originally intended to just finish one chapter I’d started earlier. Finally around 2:00 I realized I’d really better put it down and try to get some sleep…

Books that counted toward 2010 goals: Brothers In Arms went toward both the reading more science fiction goal and reading more books in series I have started and not finished.

What did everyone read last month?
