2015 flew by! I got settled in and became a New Englander, found a great job, bought a new car and a BMW motorcycle, and then moved into a new home. (i am tired just thinking about all that) I am so excited to see what 2016 bring me. Book wise, I achieved almost all my 2015 reading and blogging goals. Now it is time for new goals. I love a good challenge.

Here are the challenges I am doing in 2016:
