Booklogged ~ I love reading about all these challenges! Most of them are so creative and have me wishing I could join in, but given my dismal performance in past challenges, I know I should not.

Congratulations on finishing all those recent challenges, you are a super reader!!!

This one looks like fun and one that I may be able to finish since I can probably pull books that I am reading for other challenges and for book clubs, etc.
