fenchurch: (Spike Reading)
I think I've mentioned a few times that I had never realized reading books was a habit until I got out if it. Seriously, reading couldn't be a habit... it's just something you do! Like breathing! But after the car accident I was physically incapable of holding a book for about six months... and then I just never really started up again. I mean, I've read books, I just haven't devoured them the way I used to and I've found that I have to actually make myself pick one up to start (although it's not like I haven't been reading... it's just mostly been in electronic form). So, this year I'm working on kickstarting the old habit -- finish a book, immediately pick up the next one. And if a book isn't holding my attention, ditch it (I used to try to stick it out unless the book was really bad... but where I'm already having to work at remembering to pick up a book in the first place, I don't have room in my life for dull books).

So, here's the list of books I finished in January, still paltry compared to what I used to read, but much more than I've been managing in the past few years! I tried to keep spoilers to a minimum, but I do mention some plot points below.

Three to Get Deadly by Janet Evanovich )

Small Favor by Jim Butcher -- definitely spoilery )

The Game by Diana Wynne Jones )

Four to Score by Janet Evanovich )

And one I read most of but didn't quite finish:

The Tribe of Tiger by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas )

Big thanks to [livejournal.com profile] moscow_watcher for sharing this icon earlier this week... just in time for my first book post of the year!!
