2011 100+ Reading Challenge: Wrap-up Post

Hi, everyone!



This is my wrap-up post for the 2011 100+ Reading Challenge hosted by Amy at My Overstuffed Bookshelf.

CHALLENGE COMPLETED!

Wow, can you believe it?? I am actually stunned that I read and reviewed over 100 books in 2011! I actually read even more, but I didn't review some of them so they were not included. From three adult fiction books read over a span of eight years, to over 100 in just one year is monumental for me! Thank goodness for my iPod, which is how this all started for me!

Thanks again for hosting, Amy! 
 
Since Amy's 2012 challenge is to read a minimum of 150 books, I think that's too much of a stretch for me. Instead, I'm signed up for the 2012 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge hosted by The Book Vixen.
