December Summary

When December started, I had a total of 201 followers. Now I have 247 followers! I am definitely surprised by this! I never thought I would get over 200 and now I have 247. Thank you all for following me.

I participated in The Holiday Break Reading Challenge! It was so much fun (in fact it is still going on until tomorrow. I enjoyed participating in the different challenges. Plus, I did get some reading done and some reviews written!

I also participated in the Out With A Bang Read-A-Thon. It was definitely fun, but I only managed to read 2 books during that time. I did have fun participating in the mini challenges plus I did write a couple reviews.

I also signed up for a bunch of challenges:
  1. Off the Shelf
  2. Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge
  3. 2011 Debut Author Challenge
  4. The 50 States Reading Challenge
  5. Dystopia Challenge
  6. 1st In A Series Reading Challenge
  7. 350 Page Books Challenge
  8. Vampire Challenge 2011
  9. Zombies! Satisfy Your Undying Hunger! Challenge
  10. 2011 YA Reading Challenge
I will have fun next year trying to complete all of these!

The biggest and newest thing that happened here at Swords for Fighting was that I hosted my very first contest! I gave away a $45 Gift Code to CSN Stores! (Winner will be announced soon)
