*Platypire Read-A-Thon* January Results


January is officially over, which means it's officially time for me to update this sucker. I know I'm behind on my planned children's book reviews already. I'd hoped to get caught up on those this past weekend, but just didn't have the energy/motivation while out of town. Spending 15+ hours driving in three days (after being at work for 7 hours on one of them) didn't help. That being said, I'm pretty happy with the progress I've made so far. Without further ado, here is where I stand on things.

I'm currently six books behind on my reading one kid's book a day goal, but that's something I can absolutely get caught up on fairly quickly if I just sit down and do it (which means I need supper to be done when I get home from work so I'm not spending an hour at the end of my day cooking, and then another 20 minutes doing dishes). I am going to focus on getting caught up there before I worry about my February Platypire Read-a-thon post. 

In spite of being behind on my kid's book reading, I made some great progress on my list this month. Way better progress than I ever made when I was doing this before, so I just need to keep up this momentum. I also need to work on shaming at least Joood-Hooligan into doing this again. It would be really weird if none of the Platypire's participated and I do, right? - Katie
