Winter Reading Challenge

So, this challenge has been circulating its way through the blog world. I have been meaning to post about it, but as you can see, I haven't posted much in the last couple days. I was on an inforced vacation, so I made myself pretty scarce. I should be back around now, and get caught up on my posts! And, I am very happy to see people joining in on my Reading Challenge! It got more response than I was anticipating, so now I think that I am going to get organized and make it a bit more official. Seeing people take an interest makes me think I will just make it a yearly challenge, so if you can't join in this year, you can join in next. Anyways, for my "From the Stacks" Challenge, I am just going to repost the list I was working on. I will extend the deadline to the 30th of January, but these are the books I would like to finish before then. I have already read a few, so hopefully I can get some more cleaned off.

  1. Can't wait to see what you think of Luck in the Shadows :-)

  2. I have some WW era books, but they're all packed away at the moment, so I will have to defer to next year - great challenge idea, though!

  3. Wishing you and all the best in your challenge. I hope I can join in a future one (when my life isn't quite so crazy).

    Wow that is some list. Michelle and I thought the five we were sugessting for the challange might be too many for some people to get through. I would love to be able to get through that many books. I used to get more done but somehow school and two kids put a damper on my free reading time. Now if I could count all the childrens books I read then I would blow you all away ;)...sandra from overdue books & bluefrog hollow
