Great for you. This has been one of my most difficult challenges for 2012 - (well a similar one called Off the Shelf) I really struggle to make time for those books I already own. Ya know all those other obligations get in the way. I hope I'm able to finish my challenge this year. I only chose to read 6 books. So far I've read one of those six. You did a fantastic job with your challenge. Great work!
