UPDATE:  First, I'm sorry this is rather late, but New Year's Eve turned out to be a bomb, as my DD was hospitalized.  I'm finally home today, and relaxing after a hot shower with a glass of merlot and a name drawing. (You may thank DH...smiley)  DD is home and now recuperating, thank goodness!

So, the winner of two credits for reading at least 13 books is:   R.E.K.

The winner of one credit for reading at least 6 books is:  Kelly P.

Congrats ladies!!  

 

 

 

 

 

Alright folks...I've gone through the lists, checked them twice, gonna find out who's read at least six books.  Here's the list I have--please check my math!  If you listed titles but don't have any dates, I didn't count them as read.  If you did read them, please let me know.  

Carolyn R.   13

Linda  10   13

Kelly P.  9

Cheryl M.  17

Bruce  15

Jeanne   19   18

Becky T.   19   20

Donna W.   12  13

R.E.K.   20

Alice J.   10    12  13

Tess   15

Letty   15

Marla R.  17

Kathy F.  16

Lisa G.   12

Look this over, and make sure I counted your books correctly.  I'm operating on only one cup of coffee right now, so mistakes are entirely possible.  Janet E. and Linda (bsnbabe68) I have you down for 3 books each.  You still have until the 31st to read 3 more, and be in the drawing for one credit!

Vicky - I count 18 books that I finished - missing 2 from the bonus section (but maybe I can still catch up?)

Jeanne--you're right, it is 18.  And yes, you could still catch up! :)  

Alice, this is for the mini-challenge, the Historical mysteries.  (Good luck, bad luck).  I counted 10 mysteries on your list.  Is that right?

Thanks Vicky!  Just checked my discussions and found two books where I forgot to include dates and one without a discussion.  Thank goodness for GR!

I just added the date on the FINAL book for this Challenge.  That gives me a total of 20.  Sure took me long enough.  Thank you Vicky for all of your efforts on our behalf.

Vicky, just looked thru my reading journal, found 3 mysteries that I had failed to post.  They have been added now. This was a fun challenge.  Thanks for putting it together.

ooops!  Didn't know I needed to post dates.  I'll work on getting those added this afternoon  (done), but I've read 15 + 1 bonus book.  Working on the last category now.

Thanks Vicky- this was fun!

Deb!

Titles, Darling, titles! It's not that we don't trust you, because of course we do! We just want to steal shamelessly from the 67 73 82 91 historical mysteries you have read! 

So looking forward to adding to my Linda's WL based on your recommendations and well-written & well-developed reviews. 

Can't wait!

Kelly

Thank you ladies.  She is home, which is always a good thing.  I left her with the first three seasons of "The Big Bang Theory" because laughter is so healing.  She has a nasty, awful pressure sore on her heel, for which she was hospitalized, and is now fighting not to get another sore on her bottom, from the hospital bed.  no  Her recuperation will probably take 4-6 months, but she's home and she knows more about wound care than any young lady should. 

Today is her birthday too!smiley

Vicky -- Happy to hear that your daughter gets to spend her birthday at home and not in the hospital...and hoping that her recovery proceeds quickly and smoothly.

I know the gracious thing to do is congratulate the winners. The less gracious thing to do is express my extreme disappointment that I am not one of them and go pout in a corner. So, congratulations to the winners...really...I mean it...enjoy your winnings. I am happy for you. I am. In fact, I am drinking a glass of wine (or two) in your honor.
