Challenge Complete: 12 in 2012

12 in '12
2012 Reading Challenge
LibraryThing group
group home page

This was a fairly unstructured challenge hosted on LibraryThing.  I'm not a member of LibraryThing, but one of my fellow bloggers is, so I picked it up from her.  All we had to do was read books from 12 different categories in 2012--any categories we wanted.  We could read as many books in each category as we wanted.  The format was absolutely up to us.  Since I go a little challenge-crazy each year, I decided to just read one book in each category.  I actually finished this one on July 21 with the O. Henry short story collection and just realized that I never posted a wrap-up.  So here it is and below are my 12 categories and the books read for each.

1. Regency Romance
Venetia by Georgette Heyer (4/7/12)
2. Children's Classics
Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery (5/4/12)
3. Vintage Mystery (you all know I'll read more than one of these)
The Greenwell Mystery by E. C. R. Lorac (3/3/12)
4. Banned/Challenged Books

5. Plays/Drama
