Book Bingo Challenge Update

Anne & Kristilyn are calling for an update on progress in their Book Bingo Challenge.  When I signed up, my aim was to do at least two Bingos--anything over was going to be a bonus.  Anyone who knows me, will not be surprised that I hope to cover the card.  I completed my personal goal on March 25 when I filled in the last book for the "Read 5 books from the TBR pile" square.  Here is a complete list of squares completed and links to the various reviews. As soon as I finish my current read, I'll be able to star the "4 books realeased in 2013" square.
