CLICK ON THE BANNER TO JOIN THIS CHALLENGE

I really had a blast in 2012 with the 52 countries reading Challenge. By the end of 2012, I may still need to cover a few countried to finish it. When this is done, I will attack this challenge where you are supposed to read 1 book happening or about every state of the US.

I also plan to do it by date of statehood.
