[ MISC ]

To keep things simple, there will be only one review link up page for each of the 5 reading challenges I am hosting for the entire year. In other words, there will be one review link up post for the 2013 Outdo Yourself reading challenge for the whole year; one review link up post for the 2013 Men in Uniform reading challenge for the whole year; and so on and so forth for each reading challenge I am hosting. All 5 of the review link up posts will go up on January 1, 2013 (tomorrow) and the linky will be in reverse order (the newest entry will be in the #1 spot). Links to each reading challenge review link up post (along with their respective sign-up posts) can be found in the navigation menu on top.

J9 and I have started a new feature here on TBV called In My Pocket and we’re having fun sharing links. We love using Pocket and love sharing links, thus this feature was born.

J9 and I also plan to post some discussion posts in the new year. We have a lot of topics lined up and can’t wait to get to discussing.

Speaking of J9, I am so lucky to not only have her on the TBV team but to be able to call her my friend. I met her this year, when she joined TBV in March, and I can’t imagine not having her in my life – both online and off. She is the ying to my yang, as corny as that sounds.



Happy New Year!! We’d love to hear about your year in 2012 was and what you’re reading goals for 2013 are so leave a comment – feel free to link to your year wrap-up post if you have one.
