As you know, I have an addiction to reading challenges so there will be plenty wrapping up going on here. I find them fun, but also helpful in spurring me on in various ways. I am composing this post in the first week of December so I might just complete a few more challenges that are really close by the end of the year.
My thanks go out to all the bloggers who take the extra time to set up and maintain these challenges.
So, here we go, in approximate order of my sign-up for them.
