Challenge #2: Book Review Challenge

I want to challenge myself to review at least 3 out of every 5 books I read. I started off pretty decent in 2011 but I tapered off toward the end of the year.



Challenge #3: Indie Book Challenge

I want to try to increase my self-published reads. I think I only read 1-2 self-published books last year (not counting Courtney Milan's Unlocked which I think doesn't count).
