Read Harder – January Progress

The first month of reading harder is over! It’s been fun finding books to fit the tasks, though it will become more challenging as I work my way through the ones that are easier for me.  Even the ones that should be easy have been the cause of quibbling (the science fiction and graphic novel tasks, specifically).  Such quibbling is why I’m only claiming five books instead of seven.

Without further ado, our stats and books, color-coded to make it easier to know who read what:

Me 5/24
My Husband 3/24
