Narrowing over 200 down top just 16 was so tough. 2012 was a fantastic year to Escape Into A Good Book and 2013 looks promising as well. I hope you have enjoyed my reviews, recommendations, random thoughts and giveaways. It has been a pleasure being your Escape With A Good Book Travel Agent this year. I am excited for the new year as I start my 4th year blogging! I hope to book many escapes for you all to enjoy!
