Diversity on the Shelf 2014: Wrap Up
 Host:  My Little Pocketbooks (me)
Level:  4th Shelf (19 - 24 books)
Completed 20 books and reviews.  
(1 more book to review soon.) 
I was so scared I was not going to complete the reading challenge I was hosting.  Boy that would have been sad.  My first year hosting and not complete the challenge.  That would not be a good look at all. 
But...I DID IT!  I read more than the 19 books I thought I would red this year.  
Here are the stats from the Diversity on the Shelf 2014 reading challenge.  
Next year I will be hosting this challenge again and I will try and do 24 books.  Fingers crossed!  :)
