  1. I'm sorry I haven't written anything yet, but I did read two books and part of another I am still finishing. I will link up the post when I do! I really enjoyed this. I am a new blogger and I now really like the idea of focusing on a country for a month. I think I'm a more one book at a time reader and this is easy to do with this kind of focus. I feel like I learned so much this month! Of course I discovered other books I would like to read about France also. I am definitely interested in February in Russia. :-)

  4. Oh, I'm so very sorry, Annette! I know I did sign up but simply found no time this month to read anything at all (what with starting uni and so on). But the February in Russia idea is AMAZING. There's no way I miss that! February is the perfect month to focus on Russian lit so thank you!
