If you're like me, you have a To Be Read stack of books a mile high. I've had books sitting on my shelves for years but haven't gotten around to reading with so many other new books that have come out. This challenge, hosted by Roof Beam Reader, gives me a whole year to simply read 12 books on that list with 2 alternates and a potential prize if I complete the list by the end of the year!
