  • We had 27 unique readers.
  • 3 readers made it ALL 12 months! (Message me for a special badge.)
    • Betsy T
    • Colleen H
    • Courtney G
  • 2 made it 11 of the twelve and earn honorable mentions!
    • Alisa W.
    • Deb H.
  • February and March had the most participants with 20 each.
  • August, September, and October had the fewest participants with 9 each.
