Hi everyone!  Yes, I'm still around though my life is insanely busy and complicated. I keep hoping things will slow down but now that the Fall holidays are upon us, I think that wish will remain unfulfilled, at least for a few more months.

We are in the final stretch for the 2012 challenge!  Is anyone still keeping up? I know many have completed it (congratulations!) and a few were going back for seconds.  I will have to go and check my status because I honestly have not for some time now but I fully intend to complete the challenge for this year AND dive into the new one in January!

Check in here if you so desire to let us all know how you are doing!

I'm doing fairly well, but I have a few books in the bonus list to get to read.  I also have a couple wish list books on the regular challenge that I'm still waiting to get - hopefully they will come soon!

I got side tracked for the month of September with an historical mystery mini-challenge.  So I am now back on track for this Challenge.  I have not looked at my list for this one in a few weeks, but it seems I have 3 or 4 perhaps left to go.  It is probably 6 and I just cannot remember.

I have 4 books left for the mystery challenge, the most books I have left to complete for any challenge--which is ironic, because mysteries are my favorite genre.  I have 2 of the 4 books started, though.

I took a break from challenge books in the summer so am reading like crazy to catch up.  I have a total of 10 books left to finish the last 4 of my 7 challenges. 

LeeAnne, are you doing the 2013 challenge?  Are you going to make us wait until December 1st?  :)  I was surprised to see so many of the challenges listed already, I signed up for some but will not be choosing books until much later.

I'm done for this year as well and am looking forward to the next one. I didn't know that others have already posted the challenges for next year.  I'm going to have to check those out.

I have two books to read and I now have them at my finger tips! 

I'm ready for next year.  devil
