2015 Reading Challenges

25 Books in 2015
I'm seriously hoping that I'm under estimating my reading power, but with a newborn on the way I'm just not sure how much time I'll have for reading. Normally, I read around 90 books a year, but I don't want to put that kind of pressure on myself since little River is on her way!
