2013 TBR Pile Challenge

The objective of the 2013 TBR Pile Challenge, hosted over at Roof Beam Reader,  is to read 12 books that have been sitting on your TBR pile for at least one full year (each book must have a publication date before 01/01/2012).   Although I failed to achieve my target for the TBR challenge I participated in during 2012, I thought I would give this particular challenge a try because I really do need to tackle my TBR pile!
