The 12 in 12 Category Challenge
This group is for anyone who wants to read books from 12 different categories in 2012. You can structure the categories in any way you choose, and you can read any number of books in each category. The format of your challenge is entirely up to you!
The challenge will "officially" begin on January 1, 2012, but earlybirds and latecomers are welcome.
Share recommendations, be nice, and have fun!
When you've completed your challenge, let us know HERE.
Also, the 2013 Category Challenge is now up and running! Check it out HERE.
