Reading Challenge Wrap-Up: New Release Challenge 2016

This was my second year in a row reading new releases for the New Release Challenge.  It was something I'd been considering starting since I love to read new releases and felt they were getting short shafted in favor of challenges that focused on reading books you already have (which I also enjoy doing).

I had signed up for the New Release Enthusiast level, which was 45+ books.  I almost doubled that with 82 new releases read and reviewed this year.
