So another year of books comes to a close. These books have taken me on many amazing journeys, and I hope they can do the same for you, too. I wish that I could have read more, but I guess that 92 books in a year should be enough for me. Haha. Well, anyways, may all of you find happiness in a new book in the new year! Happy reading. :]
