I did better than my start of the month reading plans, helped in part with the ample holidays and the fact that a few of those books were short reads. My reads for the month (not necessarily in the order of my reading) are as follows:-

10. Borders of Infinity (Vorkosigan Saga) by Lois McMaster Bujold (**)
