Yearly Sweets and Hearts

Happy New Year!!!
My Goal was 88 books this year! I surpassed that goal! Which is freaking awesome!

TOTAL BOOKS 104! (though goodreads says 101... we must be miscommunicating)

I didn't finish 4 books which surprises me a ton! But I have never before kept track of this number.

I have decided to do away for the year most book goals. The only one I will attempt is to read another 88 books in the 2013 year. I don't really care much about any of the other stuff at this point. I want to read because that's what feels good, not because I feel the need to reach a challenge or goal I set.

For 2012 I set some goals... like do not buy more than one book a month, which I had destroyed before the year was half over! I am pretty sure I did read a genre I hadn't before but I can't remember which one and I don't care to go back and find it! I got dozens of free books, post on those to come tomorrow. FOR NOW Here is the last with links to all the books I read in 2012!
