Each year I’ve participated in few challenges. In 2011 I signed on to:
The 2011 Reading From My Shelves Project
The Reagan Arthur Books Challenge
The War & Peace Read Along

So these were very relaxed challenges.If you click on The Reagan Arthur Challenge link above you’ll see I read only two books this year. One was sent to me by the publisher and the other I bought. I enjoyed both books.

The War & Peace Challenge was supposed to end today but several weeks ago I received an email saying it would be extended to mid-2012. That’s all I needed to hear! Since I’m on page 1061 of 1215 I hope to finish it well before June.

Now lets talk about the 2011 Reading From My Shelves Project. I’ve joined the past couple of years and was content with the 20+ books I cleared off my shelves each year. Silly me. I think for every book I cleared off the shelves four more appeared. How does that happen?!! That is the reason I’ve decided to make 2012 the year of reading mostly from my shelves. I’ll read a few review books but only books I really, really want to read.
That’s my plan. Thank you so much for visiting Bookfan this year. I love your comments and book suggestions, etc.
I wish you all a New Year filled with good health, good friends, and good books to read.
Happy New Year!
