Reading Challenges 2012

I’ll be using this page to keep track of the all the 2012 reading challenges and my progress.  As I read a book, it will be crossed out from the list and a completion date added.  To make it a bit easier to stay organized, my reading challenges have been divided into four categories: genres and series, titles and authors, locations, and miscellaneous.  Books cannot be crosslisted within a category but can be across categories.  Stay tuned to see if I can make it!
