Progress on challenges

Little Brother was my December book for the Read Your OWN Library! Challenge.

I did not read any of the books I bought this month, so I'll have a bit of catching up to do in January (OK, a lot of catching up to do, what with all those book presents). I know I was bad, but there were deals! Such wonderful deals! I pledge not to buy any new books in January, even though I have gift cards! That should give me the chance to get mostly caught up.

I read 5 more books for the Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge, achieving my goals for that challenge.

Don't forget to sign up for the 2012 Anne Rice Challenge!
