6th Completed Challenge!

This challenge really worked out well for me this year. I am so glad I finally read the first four books on my list, especially being that I put them off for years and years. This challenge was the impetus to pick them up and all four were very good reads! I had some others that I wasn't too thrilled with, but no real duds. Hooray!

Thank you 3M from 1morechapter for hosting this challenge.

  1. Okay, that's it...I just can't take this anymore! If you finish up the A-Z challenge before the end of the month, I may just have to quit coming over here! :o) You know I'm kidding, of course!

    Congrats, Joy!

  2. Debi ~ I won't be finishing the A ~ Z Challenge for quite a while, so the coast is clear - you can drop by as often as you like. :)

    Wow where do you find the time?!?

  4. Rhinoa ~ My current job allows me to listen while I work, so many of my "reads" have been on my iPod. :) The bad part in that is I "read" during the day, so I don't pick up an actual book as much in the evenings. :( There seems to be a flip-side to everything.

  5. Congrats on finishing the challenge, Joy!!

  6. 3M ~ I really enjoyed it. It was the push I needed to read books I've wanted to read for a long time. Thanks again for hosting.

  7. Sounds like a lot of great choices. I'll have to check out the Nazi Officer's wife.

  8. Chain Reader ~ It was difficult to put down. I highly recommend it if you like memoirs of that timeframe.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

I hope you have a great day and ...
Happy Reading!
