2013 Challenges

I’ve decided to sign up for a couple of challenges for the coming year, because I always think it is good to have a goal. This will also help ensure that I read books that I’ve been putting off for ages, or new authors, or finish series’ that I’ve started.  Where possible I would like to read different books for each challenge, but if a book crosses over then I’m not complaining!
