Hello and Welcome!

Red House Books is going through a bit of a update!

I've always had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted this space to be but I've been detoured from my path by...lots and lost of other people's opinions and ways of doing things...

I'm committed to this little chunk of the interweb but I've also branched out into other places so! Now it's time to think of Red House Books as more of a hub of all things me! And Me is a hell of a lot of book love!

Stay tuned!

Monthly Reads and Challenge Updates - January 2010

I know I say this every month but - WOW! Where did the time go?
January brought tons of snow (although not as much as last year :) Tons of Birthdays (7 family members) and Tons of books! Woo hoo!
This is my first January blogging and I have totally embraced 2010 reading challenges. I did limit myself though because I know I could easily get overwhelmed trying to read challenge books and not have enough time to focus on all the other great books out there!
Also, as not to crowd up my posts with weekly updates on Challenge statuses I'll only be posting updates monthly.

Lastly! I have a big contest in the works. Multiple books, multiple winners with an easy entry form. Stay tuned!

Ok - on with the show!
