Congratulations, Bev. That's quite an accomplishment!

Now there's a challnege that I could easily have finished. To be honest 52 books in a year is not at all a challange to me (Oops. Is that gloating?), bu tI know it would be an immense feat for a lto of people. I'm sure you must've doubled the grand total for Books Read in 2013.

My total, BTW, was 103 completely finished out of 125 attempted. I'm afraid I'm one of those who throws in the towel if a book fails to excite me. I abandoned 22 books for one reason or another this year. Some of those 22 were just set aside and I do plan to finish them.

John, you should join us for the 52 in 52 for 2014! I'm still reading for 2013 (madly trying to cram 7 more books into 4 more days so I can finish my last three challenges). I've got to make 181 books to do that.
