Is there a plus infinity button here somewhere for the ruts? I'm looking forward to the 44 books on my required reading list for 2013.

Since this year was all about the decades and letters challenges for me I've taken a bit of time to summarize how the challenges went. I finished all my challenges for the year. All 26 letters and all 13 decades. I also read more books and pages than last year. So on to the useless statistics.
