As I mentioned, my resolution was to read about a book per week for 2011, and I checked back to see how many books I read for January. I was shocked, then impressed.
I read 6 whole books. Some short, some long, some literary, some not, most all of them I enjoyed for different reasons.
Here they are, and the grade I gave them. If you only read one book off this list, my recommendation is Room, by Emma Donoghue. Completely original, completely believable, completely disturbing, but in the end, also completely beautiful.
