Well, I managed to fail at something.
I know, you're all shocked, right? But I did. I failed like the way Polyphemus failed to eat Odysseus and his crew. So what's my crime? I set a goal and didn't hit it. The Dusty Bookshelf challenge of 2012 kicked my but like a stick sharpened in a cave fire, and yes, that is the residual goo of my eye trailing down my face while I weep my shame.
OK - none of that is actually true. I still have both my eyeballs and I haven't cried in like, a long time, but I DID fail my Dusty Bookshelf challenge of 2012. In a big way. I only read 5 of the 13 books on my Dusty Shelf.
Shame and shunning, I know.
So I'm going to go ahead and move those dusty books on over to the 2013 Dusty Bookshelf Challenge - and I highly advise you book-hoarders go ahead and do it, too. I'm registering as a Dust Bunny, which means I'll read 5 - 10 books on my dusty shelf.
But hey! I DID make my Debut Author Challenge of 2012. I think there may be a conflict of interest if I sign up for the 2013 Debut Author Challenge, but I advise you go ahead and do that. And if you feel like putting NOT A DROP TO DRINK on your list, it wouldn't hurt my feelings.

And in case you do decide to join any sort of reading challenge next year, a NOOK just might help you accomplish that, right? Would you like a free one? I think you might. The Class of 2k13 is giving one away this month. Hop on. We're fun.
