    And, my final 2012 reading challenge *drum roll please* 

    I'll be going for the minimum Coupon clipper: 12 books (as I just found out you can get free eBooks on Friday at BN), I already learned the little trick of typing 0.0 in the search box to find free books. I'm looking forward to this challenge and I'm sure Chris is too, as this will help me buy less books.
