Reading Challenges

For 2012, I am making use of Goodreads and using their Reading Challenge Widget! I'm keeping it simple and going for the 52 books once again. I was so close in 2011!


If you're interested, here are an assortment of books I've read, or feel free to connect on Goodreads!:

    Level IV - Read 20 books
    Level V - Read 20+ books

    I will try for Level III, and may move up to Level IV. I have 18 books listed below, I just need to grab 2 more before the end of the year to make it to Level IV.
    1. The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins
