Progress on challenges

Dime Store Magic was supposed to be my November book for the Read Your OWN Library! Challenge, but I didn't get to it! This is the first time in the year I've been doing this challenge that I've failed to read the book I'd planned! :( I did read some other older books though, so I could have done it if I'd just chosen a different book.

S is for Space was my November Random Read.

I completed the following letters for the 2012 A-Z Book Challenge: U

I read 2 books for the Mount TBR Reading Challenge.

I read 0 books for the 2012 Anne Rice Challenge.

Operation: TBR Reduction: I added 16 books to my to read list and removed 12 (the ones I read, plus 3 NetGalleys that had expired), so my pile increased by 4 this month.
