Looking Back ... 2012 Challenges

At the beginning of last year I joined 10 challenges. I thought it was a crazy number at the time (but not so crazy compared to this year!), but took the plunge and had a great time keeping up with the books I read. Here's a quick recap if you're interested. Click on the links to see a complete listing of books that I read to fulfill the challenges.

    1. Thanks, Melanie! I'm going to give the states challenge another try - some of those states are hard to find though! :)
