2012 Reading Progress - January

To kick off 2012 we allowed Shakespeare to thoroughly invade Two Bibliomaniacs.  6 plays in 31 days felt like an impossible task, but we’re happy to report victory!  Or at least continued existence and more than a couple of battle scars...  Actually, we have a new respect for the Bard of Avon and next time we come face to face with Shakey we promise not to run screaming in the other direction!     

As we return to our normal scheduled programming we have a ton to look forward to this year.  At this particular moment, nothing really comes to mind, but we’ll think of something soon.  Instead, sit back, relax and reflect on some of our favorite reviews throughout the month (Don’t for get to check out our groundbreaking Graphic Review of Anya’s Ghost)!

Here are some of our favorite reviews that we posted in January.
Anya’s Ghost – Vera Brosgol
Hamlet – William Shakespeare
Othello – William Shakespeare
A Midsummer Night’s Dream – William Shakespeare
As You Like It – William Shakespeare
Macbeth – William Shakespeare
Unbroken – Laura Hillenbrand

  1. Y'all read a lot! I'm happy to see your Unbroken recommendation, as I just started reading that upon my husband's request and I think it's quite engaging so far. But nothing too awful has happened yet, and I'm just waiting for the tension to spike any moment!

  2. You had a pretty great reading month! Anya's Ghost is high on my TBR list.

  3. Wow you had a wonderful start to the year!
