Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

January reading overview.

January started out as my annual Cozy Cull, but really ended up being more of a Cozy-mystery Clear Out, since I didn't cull nearly as many as I expected to.  There are still plenty more sitting on the shelf waiting to be read though, so the cull isn't over yet.


On the plus side, I was on reduced hours at work because it was school summer holidays (and I work IT for the school system) so I had a lot more time to read and I screamed through the books, averaging not quite 1 book per day.


All up, 29 books got read; that might be my biggest reading month ever and I'm very pleased with the reduction of books in that particular TBR pile.
