I totally failed this challenge. I ended up having so much legislative work going on. I knew I should have held off. Oh well.

Congrats to all!

I feel you Courtney..lol I usually do sooooo much better in challenges. I have been so freakin busy and it is cutting into my reading time. Not to mention my hubby switching to 3rd shift screwed up my schedule so bad. But at least I added alot of good books to my tbr and got to talk books with my fellow book addicts..LOL!! I really miss not being able to participate in the challenges like I use to. After everyone gets some rest one of us will have to start another challenge!!

I'll be anxiously awaiting the next challenge. Being held accountable for what I read does wonders for my TBR.
