January Update!

Pyongyang: A Journey in North Korea - Guy Delisle A Dance with Dragons: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book Five - George R.R. Martin The Unfortunates - B.S. Johnson Don Quixote (which was a dream) - Kathy Acker Return of a King: The Battle for Afghanistan, 1839-42 - William Dalrymple

My required reading for school has been a lot heavier than I anticipated this month, so there are going to be a few changes to my January TBR. So far this month, I've read Pyongyang by Guy Delisle for my travel writing class, The Unfortunates by B.S. Johnson for my experimental fiction class, and A Dance with Dragons from my original TBR. 


In the next week or so, I'll be reading Kathy Acker's Don Quixote for my experimental fiction class, and I hope finish J.R.R. Tolkien's The Return of the King as planned. The Hobbit, however, will have to be bumped to another month, probably February. 


Happy Reading!
