100 Books a Month Challenge

I'm a bit surprised about us reading over 100 books a month. We really didn't try that hard and are still adjusting to all of the changes in our lives. I've not been reading our library anymore. The library is much larger than our small town library back in Ontario. The kids have been choosing many book on their own and I can only carry so many to the car. Two full bags are enough. It's not a small walk anymore either. I went back to the website for Reading My Library and I don't see the challenge there anymore. I may start up again if it seems like something we want to do. So, here is our list for the month of January.
