Reading: It's What I Do...

So, yesterday's ranting tirade about the neighbor kids and my dogs disappeared. Kind of like Keyser Soze. Poof! He's gone.  (blatant Kevin Spacey/Usual Suspects reference).  And, so was my blog post.  For those of you who got a chance to read it yesterday before the Blogger gods stole it, you all know what a harrowing day I'd had on Monday. 

But, really that is no excuse for not posting my January reading list before now.  I mean, hello? February here.  *sigh* So, anyway.  On with the show.
