Sure enough, I didn't read as many books this year as I did last year since I wasn't reading while nursing, but I still managed to read more than in previous years. I read more non-fiction this year than I ever have before (not including school).
Next year I'm hoping to read at least as many books as I did this year and will hopefully complete more challenges.
What's in a Name? 6 (finished 4 of 6)
The Dystopia Challenge (finished 10 of 15)
50 States Challenge (finished 14 of 50)
R.I.P. VIII (completed 4 of 4)
