CHALLENGE: Series Goals 2015

This has been my favorite challenge and the one I have the most success with - my own personal list of series to keep up with. Last year I read 24 books from my lists. Being able to get some audiobooks has helped a lot, and has rejuvenated some series for me.  Thanks again to SuziQoregon at Whimpulsive for the inspiration.
