Reading Challenge 2013

I typed this up earlier in the year.  I posted it on my other blog and I have to put it here since it deals with books!!  Last year I did this.  Whenever I want am done with a book, but I do not know what I want to read.  I look at my Reading List.  You are more than welcome to use it to.  Print it out.  Copy/Paste it into Word, but get rid of this so you can cross off the books you read.  Right now I am reading #1, #90, #103, & #111, & #112. 

This year I am only doing 1 Reading Challenge.  That one is the Romance Challenge!!  Last year I read 33 books.  I am hoping I can beat that number with 40!  Can I do it?  Yes, I can!  I read 54 books last year, but only 33 was Romance books.  The others were kids books!  Hey, I am a mom.  We have a weekly Reading Night.  We missed some nights.
