2015 January Reading Plan
Setting goals one month at a time.
Overall goal for month: 16 books. (last year I averaged 18 books a month, with January being the month in which I read the most (33). This year I'm setting a Goodreads goal of 200, which is 16.6 per month). I'm doing some challenges this year - Foodies and French Bingo (should have some cross-over with those two) - some lit months, and probably one or two more.
January in Japan
These are the ones for group discussion. I may read some other things, short stories and/or something online.
