I managed to get 11 of my 15 Challenges completed in 2014. I’m pretty happy with that progress 😉

I think my biggest goal for my reading in 2015 is to clear out the books I’ve purchased and still not read. Not the free ones (though I’d like to get some of those done too) but, the ones I spent $$ on!

Here’s a synopsis of where 2014 ended with the Challenges:
