Yes...I surrender. As hard as it to say, I must and the numbers show it. This year had many real life personal challenges that took priority over everything, even reading. And even though my reading was affected, including my challenges, I am looking forward to, being optimistic and getting excited about 2012. I have started setting up my Challenge page, stalking blogs for more challenges and getting ready for the new year. So I thought I would start cleaning house, removing the challenges that I failed at, and making room for new ones.
I entered 18 Challenges in 2011. I know...I am a Challenge Addict plus a button addict. That's why Gina from Hott Books and I are once again co hosting the Challenge Addict Challenge, for those of us who have this
somewhat little, run of the mill, large, whopper of, in need of an intervention addiction. lol
To date I have only read 45 books, so embarrassed, but there were months, that I was lucky if I finished one book. The following Challenges I am surrendering, knowing that I will not be able to complete within a month.

However, even with the little I did read, I did manage to complete some of my 2011 Challenges!! I am excited that some of the challenges I was hoping for are returning and I am signed up and ready to go, then there are others that I am anxiously awaiting to see if they get posted on A Novel Challenge in hopes they will be returning and while I am stalking the site, I am finding new challenges too. 2012 is going to be my year of reading!!!!
And now.....my TBR bookcase, Sony EReader and Kindle are full and no doubt will have many more titles added throughout the year, thanks to everyone's reviews and the memes that I participate in, and now I sit and wait for the New Year!!!
