Happy New Years to you all!  Thanks again for following.  Below you will find my wrap-up post for 2011.

This year I ended up reading 288 books, that is more than 2010 where I read 277 books. So it was a great year for reading. You can go to the full list of books read here. I have also broken them down into category below by genre and age group.

I also had some great author interviews and participated in a lot of blog hops, book hops, and giveaways this year! If anyone has any suggestions of other additions they'd like to see to this blog please comment below. I do plan on keeping this blog review focused though and hope to continue giving you all 4-5 book reviews a week.

Reading Challenges:
I completed all but one of my reading challenges this year.  The one the wasn't completed was the Show Me the Free Reading Challenge.  When I signed up for this challenge I thought it was for reading any book you got free; lately it was modified so that only books that everyone could get for free qualified for the challenge.  Unfortunately I just had too many review books to read to read a lot of additional free books.

Anyway I am looking forward to a number of reading challenges next year as well.  You can see my reading challenge stats for 2011 below.
