Reading Challenge: Cruisin' Through the Cozies 2015

And we start off the new year looking at 2015 Reading Challenges.  Hardly a surprise, but I'm am signing up for the Cruisin' Through the Cozies challenge again this year.  I mean, I have no plans to stop reading this genre any time soon.

Once again, I will be signing up for the 4th Level, which means I have to read 20 cozies this year.  Since I read 62 last year, I don't think that will really be a challenge, do you?
