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 - January 2011

Month 1 of 2011 is gone! Bye bye! See ya! Maybe you can take the snowpocalypse with you? What's that? No, you can't? Oh well...I guess that's ok. What was that again? Oh - you taught February some of your tricks? You son of a....

This winter was snowy. Still is snowy. Will be getting snowier...soon...

Lots of great clod cozy nights perfect for reading :)
I think I did pretty good this month, reading wise. I'm really hoping to hit 200 books this year - not sure if I'll make it or not.

I'm also trying something new this year - keeping track of the number of pages read in addition to number of books. I honestly have no idea how many pages I read in any given month or year so this should be fun! Ooo - should probably keep track of hours listened to as well.

Ok - here they are.

01. Reckless by Cornelia Funke (400)
02. Lockdown (Escape From Furnace #1) by Alexander Gordon Smith (304)
