52 Books in 52 Weeks Wrap Up

It's the last day of the year already! WOW! Where has the time gone. I'd like to write up a little wrap up post for my 52 Books in 52 Weeks challenge. I've been writing down the books I read since 2009. In 2010, I saw this challenge online and decided to take it. I read 57 books that year. In 2011, I also read 57 books. Pretty consistent huh? Well, 2012, was a little different. Doing really well most of the year and then we went on vacation to Arizona for 18 days and didn't get a minute to read so that was over 2 weeks of NO reading.. ick.. I know, that was hard! So the final countdown for 2012 is 50 books. I missed it by 2 books.. I tried too. I was reading two books at a time to try to make it but in the end I just didn't have enough hours in the day to read, school, and be a mom.. I am currently half way through 2 books but I'm not going to count them as 2012 books since I didn't get them finished by today. I'm happy with the progress and look forward to beating it in 2013. I will have two books to add to 2013 hopefully by weeks end!! YEH!

Here is the list of the 50 books I've completed this year. I think I did really well in finding new authors to read. I'm actually pretty happy with the number of non fiction books I read this year as I tend to just spend most of my time reading fiction. I do want to thank the book publishers I review for that have provided me with a large amount of the books I read this past year.. Reviewing has allowed me to read new authors and find new favorites that I wouldn't of known before.. It's great!
Over at the 52 Books in 52 Weeks blog they have other challenges to participate in. One that caught my eye for 2013 is reading a book that has a movie called Book Verses Movie. I would like to try to take that challenge alongside the 52 books challenge! I have at least two books I'd like to read and watch the movie one so we will see how this goes..
