Slow progress on most fronts this month, but while I haven’t finished anything, I’ve started another couple of tasks, read purely from the in-house collection and not added to that at all and also made really good progress on watching the in-house DVD collection (not only the ones that count towards this but also ones that have been acquired since which don’t count in goal terms, but do count as real life progress – which is also a good thing!)
