May Wrap Up Continued..... Reading Challenges

I can't believe we are already done with five months of 2013. I read 9 books again in May.  I had a great reading month. Last month I was only entered in 21 challenges, but in March I joined 2 more challenges bringing my total up to 23 challenge plus challenge addict. The 2 challenges I joined both have to be done by June so I will need to get them before any of the others. Then I joined another challenge in May bringing my total up for 24 challenges. To keep up to date on my challenges throughout the month click on my reading challenge tab at the top of the page. To find the links to sign up for any of the reading challenges click here. To sign up for the one I joined in March click here. It has until June 20th to complete. To sign up for the challenge I joined in May click here. Below is my update enjoy.
