I am participating in Sheila's Where Are You Reading Challenge this year so I am going to use it as my wrap-up at the end of each month. I am really having fun posting each book I read to my 2011 Reading Map (on Google).

Here's where I read in January:
Europe:

United States:

South and Central America:

Asia:

Middle East:

Africa:
Challenge Update:
  • Awesome Authors-- 3 out of 6 to 10 books
  • Middle East--9 out of however many I want
  • Mystery and Suspense--3 out of 12
  • One, Two Theme--1 out of 6
  • PoC--9 out of however many I want
  • Reading from my Shelves--4 out of however many I want/can
  • What's in a Name--2 out of 6

You read some good books in January with varied locales. Hope February is just as good.

I'm loving using this map so much! It's wonderful seeing which countries you've "visited". I certainly read quite a few books outside the US this time, and would love to continue the trend.

Diane--January felt like a really great reading month so I hope the trend continues in 2011!

Aths--I am such a geography geek that the map is perfect for me. Actually, it combines maps, books, and technology so really, it's all good!

I found you from the mystery and thriller challenge and commented on your Murder on the Down Low review. Definitely would recommend reading Buying Time also.

I'm a new follower.

I looks like you got a lot of good books read in January! I'll be putting my January wrap-up post together sometime this week, I'm not quite sure how many books I've read so far.

I have the same Washington point as you, the Art of Racing In The Rain :) Have fun Helene - I am loving my map!

Marce--I saw your other comment and am going to look into getting Buying Time sometime this week. Thank you!

Alyce--Can't wait to see your wrap up as well. For me, January was a really good reading month and I hope February is awesome as well

Sheila--Racing in the Rain was SO good. Thank you for the map challenge/idea!

Amused--I must admit that I schedule books for my challenges early in the year to make sure I complete them without panicking at the end :-)
