My Reading Projects

Reading lists are the best lists. I made a couple of reading-related New Year's resolutions and joined a really great reading challenge that a fellow blogger set up, and here's where I keep track of my progress with each of these projects. Whenever I finish a book I'll strike its name on the list, and as soon as I get the review finished you can find it on the "Book Reviews" page.
