My Reading Challenges 2013

This page is dedicated to my 2013 reading challenges I will be participating in.  These challenges allow for crossovers so some of the same books can be on any of the challenges listed.  The coming year will be my second participation in challenges, and I did manage to meet my goals in 2012.  Happy reading to other challenge participants!  No review for a book you’re curious about?  Just send me an email to vmcarswell (at) gmail (dot) com and I’ll let you know what I thought!
