2013 Book Reading Challenges

Well, once again, it's time of the year to do the book reading challenges post. I'm one book away of finishing this year's by tomorrow night and before midnight. Sadly, this year was the final year that my Romance BookClub egroup would have a romantic-theme challenge. It's closing its doors this week. So now I have the usual to line out this year's challenges, one by one. So here we go.

P.S. Good news. Someone saved the Romance Book Club from closing the egroup. I'll keep my challenges open until March to create some room in my TBR list.
