50 Book Challenge #3

50 Book Challenge #3
CHALLENGE #3 (January 1st 2011 – December 31st 2011)

This was my third attempt at completing the 50 Book Challenge. I read 50 books by the end of June and so I increased my goal to 100, which I reached. I never thought back in January 2011 that I’d read 100 books, so I was extremely pleased! It was also my first time completing the challenge over an actual calendar year.
