I've decided for 2012 that I'm going to do three challenges in order to make things more fun as far as my reading.  I'm doing the Pages Read Challenge, Reduce Mount TBR, and the 1001 books you must read before you die challenge all over at  My goals are to read 14,000 pages, move 45 books from my TBR shelf, and to read six 1001 books.  I'm super excited for this new year to read a lot and burst my previous goals from 2011.  Happy 2012 everyone and happy reading!
