Books You Can Read in a Day Challenge - End of Year Update!

Notice: I'd like to apologize for the appearance of my blog. Several weeks ago, my background disappeared and blogger decided to use my default background. I can't seem to change it (to another blogger background or anything else!) I haven't had a great deal of time to worry about it, but I have "googled" it and I know others are having this problem too. If you have a suggestion, please let me know!

Thanks to everyone who participated in my 2012 Books You Can Read in a Day Challenge. There were only a few of us, but that's OK. So how did you do? Let me know in the comments, or leave me a link.

If you are interested in joining me for 2013, here's a link to the challenge page. There's also a link on the sidebar of my blog.

My 2012 goal was to read 25 books, and I made it to 32. What is interesting is that I didn't read that many off of my original list. I just read a lot of quick books as I found them. So, the rest of my list for 2012 is on my 2013 list.  Feel free to give me suggestions throughout the year!

Here's my list of books read in a day during 2012:

1. Skellig, by David Almond (audiobook, but I listened to it in one day!)

  1. I admire how many of the books on your list were full novels and not just novellas or graphic novels like my list was! I think that will be one of my goals this year. To reach 20 on my read in a day list but to have half the books be 200+ pages.

  2. I don't know how I did. Real life called and then my blog's platform's support started to give me hell so I fell way behind with everything. Still, I'm signing up again. Hopefully this time around!


Thanks for visiting! I LOVE comments! I've received several awards and because of the time involved, I now must make this an award free blog.
