Challenges

2012 Challenges:

The only challenge I successfully completed was the Historical Fiction Challenge, which, actually, I did awesome in. I didn’t even include all the the hist. fic. I read this year. Because I read a TON. The other challenges, not so much. Maybe this coming year, my first year as a real librarian, I’ll do better on the Debut Challenge, but I don’t know that I’ll ever get to finish the Off the Shelf Challenge. From here on out there will always be new books to read.
