Reading Challenge Wrap Up: Cruisin' Through the Cozies and Craving for Cozies Challenges 2020

 I'll start with the lead - I can't believe it, but I got 100 cozies read this year.  I remember being close last year, but not quite making the triple digits.  I'm very happy with that.

But I'm here to do a wrap up for both the  Cruisin' Through the Cozies and Craving for Cozies challenges this year.  For Cruisin', I was at the maximum level of 40+ cozies.  For Craving, I went with Yearning, which was 51-75 cozies.  Clearly I surpassed both of those goals.
