    Wow, what a great reading year! I didn’t do any challenges other than the basic Goodreads one, and I did exceed my goal there by about 25 books. Looking forward to seeing what you read in 2017. Happy New Year!

  2. Happy New Year! You had a great reading year. I love how much poetry reading you did. I’m hoping to boost that number this year. Here’s wishing you a great reading year.
