The first month of the new year, and I feel like I’m off to a good start. I’m just about on track to beat my personal best of 53 books in a year. I’m sure that extra day in February this year will make all the difference, too.

A major perk of my new job is reading copies – pre-release ones. A review of After the Snow is on its way, folks…

I’ve been thinking about my reading habits again, in terms of how what I read breaks down. So far it’s all been fiction – though I’m reading some non-fiction currently. Two new releases. Two Australian books. Two women, two men. Out of four books read thus far, I think I’m pretty comfortable with that being representative of my reading habits… As the year goes on I would like to keep the fiction:non-fiction ratio roughly equal though…
