I also joined lots of challenges, and don't think that I successfully completed a single one, although a came close on a couple. I've joined a ton more challenges for 2010, so we'll see if I do any better on them! I've been excitedly holding off on reading some books, because they were scheduled for challenges that didn't begin until 2010. So now I get to dig into them. Yeah!
