"Books I've Read In 2012" Wrap-up

I managed to read 145 books this year. I counted as a book "Downton Abbey" even though it was 15 hours of viewing the show on DVD. I read about the same amount of books as I did in 2011. I completed the 10 Reading Challenges I joined this year. One of the goals I completed this year was to finish the Debbie Macomber's 
Cedar Cove series. (I finished it in July and August.) That about sums up my reading for 2012.
