January Month in Review and Pages Read Challenge Update

January Month in Review and Pages Read Challenge Update

I have had an amazing beginning to my 2015 reading year.  I enjoyed rereads of a few of my favorite series, caught up (or almost, I finished the last few right at the beginning of February) on another series which I have wanted to get back to for a while now and read some amazing new titles and stretched outside of my normal reading comfort zone with a phenomenal science fiction title.  I am also in great shape on most of my challenges which is a great feeling as well.

Total # of Pages Read: 14,533
I passed level 1 (13,000 pages) and am headed towards level 2 (26,000 pages).  My personal goal was 75,000 pages and I think I will be able to do that pretty easily.  

Note: I am very particular about physical book pages; if it starts on page 8, I subtract 7 from the total page count.  For e-books, I checked goodreads and amazon.  If two different page numbers were given, I went with the smaller number.  I could not find page numbers for all of my books but I am not overly worried.  I would rather skew against my favor to make up for any incorrect e-book page numbers.  Also, all books were either purchased with my own funds or borrowed from my local public library.
