2012 1st and 2nd In A Series Reading Challenge

1st in a Series Challenge is the challenge to read the first book in a series. I like series so I figure I would join this challenge. It’s too bad I already read three books that could have counted for this challenge. That means I get to discover more book series. Yay!
