2015 Return and Report; Also, Big Blog Changes

Hello, everyone! It's been a while since you've heard from me; I'll explain why in a minute. First things first, though. Here's my report on my 2015 challenges:

2015 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge

I Love Library Books 2015
hosted by Gina at Book Dragon's Lair

Level: Early Reader
Goal: 9 books
Tag: I Love Library Books 2015

Oh, thank goodness. One I actually did well on! I read 32 library books -- success!


2015 EBooks Reading Challenge
hosted by Annette at Annette's Book Spot
Level: Megabytes
Goal: 25 books
Tag: 2015 EBook Reading Challenge

Result:
I mentioned when I signed up for this challenge that most of my reading was going to be electronic, and I was definitely right. I read 59 ebooks last year, which means, for those following along at home, that I only read 3 paper books last year. O_O

Now for my other news. I'm switching blogs! Y'all. I started a new blog over on WordPress, and because of Lack of Motivation, I unfortunately haven't gotten much traction on it yet. But you're welcome to go find me there! It's called Novel Diplomacy.

Things coming soon on it:
-Joining some 2016 Reading Challenges
-Possibly some book reviews
-General news about my life

I'll see you there!
