Read My Own Books 2018 - January Check-In

Well, I'm off to a pretty good start but I think that's because I've forced myself to start sorting through the stacks of books everywhere and have been discovering books that I had forgotten I'd bought. Not a good thing as I've also come to the realization that I have about 700 physical books waiting to be read and I'm not even going to think about the hundreds of titles on my Kindle. I think I may change my rules slightly and adjust the number of books I have to read before I can a buy a new one. I got off to a good start with my TBR challenge but I'm sad I didn't read a single library book this month. Some of the books I've read this month I wouldn't even contemplate buying now but obviously a few years ago my reading habits were quite different! Bold means TBR, red means a review copy, and purple indicates a Kindle read.
