So, the aim of trying to reduce unread material around the house progresses.
In January, I read twelve books (three write-ups are now pending), one of those being a library book. I also acquired three new books. Meaning that overall, I cut down the number of unread books in the house by eight.
It's a start. Things may get a bit difficult in February, as Grace and I will be reading a whole bunch of books to try to find some novels worth nominating for Hugo awards. Some of those will be from the public library, so ... we'll see how many of my own books get read. If I end up with another net total of eight, I'll be happy.
