Challenge Wrap-Up, READING CHALLENGES 2009

Unfinished Challenge – 2009 100+ Reading Challenge

J. Kaye hosted this challenge in 2009. I really enjoyed it even though I fell short. When I signed up I thought for sure I would be able to accomplish this challenge. In 2008 I ended the year with 97 books read. However, I had a more crazy year in 2009 – we bought a house and moved and got a dog. So my reading time was really cut due to those changes. However, I still finished with a strong year – at 74. Of course the vacation to Florida the last week of the year helped – I read 5 books during those 7 days! Crazy, I know! So I was quite pleased with how I ended up finishing this challenge even though I fell short. Here is what I read:
