November Challenge Wrap Up


This year I signed up for fewer year long challenges and I'll do more short-term challenges.

November was the annual Ho Ho Ho Read-A-Thon hosted by the Caffeinated Reviewer and The Book Shelfery. It's less than a week long but lots of fun! I exceeded my goal so I was happy.

I'm hosting 4 reading challenges next year as well as participating in several others. See here for more info and sign up links.
