2012 Reading Challenge List.
Yes, it’s that time of year again. The challenge-joining frenzy is upon us. And here is our list of challenges I have decided that John and I will attempt for 2012. (Quote from John – “Huh?”)
I have tried to kept it “light” this year, but at 10 challenges I think perhaps not too “light”.
I will be adding the books that we read linked to their reviews into this post, which will be accessible via the tabs at the top of our blog so if you wish to access it again you easily can. And all the badges below link to the challenge host’s main post, just in case you would like to join in too!
