Since  I surpassed my original goal of reading 50 books last year, I’m going to make my goal to read 100 books in 2012. There were a few times this year that I pondered the question of audio books. On the one hand, listening to audio books meant that I experienced the book. On the other, I didn’t actually read them in the truest sense. I’m still on the fence on that one.

Sadly enough I didn’t meet my goal for the A-Z Challenge (missed E, N, X, and Y), Vampire Challenge (short by 4), or Shifter Challenge (five less).

All in all, I think I had a pretty good reading year. I found quite a few memorable books, added to my library (to The Husband’s constant dismay), and am somewhat satisfied by my year end count. This year I need to be better at recording as I missed quite a few that I forgot to record and can no longer remember.

I’d break it down further for you but honestly, I did almost zero reviewing last year. This year I’m going to be better than that. I’ll aim for something crazy like five.
