sunday-salon-2I didn’t write a Sunday Salon post last week because I was recovering from illness; being unwell helped with my reading a little bit though I have slowed down since then.


My participation is going fairly well

  • the Sci-Fi experience – I have completed one book, yet to be reviewed, and as the experience covers more than just books the movie I’m going to see later today will also be included in my stats for this challenge
  • the Clear Your Reader challenge – all six books I’ve finished this month so far have been on the Kindle app, and I hope to complete at least one more before the challenge finishes next week
  • the TBR Double Dog – the six books read this month all count towards this; the buying embargo is firmly holding except for a couple of e-books I pre-ordered before the end of last year (and which will remain firmly unread). I’m also expecting/hoping that I might get one or two books for my birthday next week 😀

In progress

All my current reads are shown on the blog sidebar; I’m dipping in and out of five at the moment, three non-fiction, one book of short stories and a the fourth in Charles Stross’ Laundry Files series, which I’m not quite halfway through.

The Jonathan Strange Update

I’m still where I was on Christmas Eve, page 134. I am going to give myself until the end of February and if I haven’t made much (or indeed any) progress I’m going to add this to DNF


Nothing abandoned since my last post.

So well ahead with my goals for January.
