Four-Legged Friend Reading Challenge - The Participants

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for all your kind thoughts about Sandy. People that I have never even seen comment before have been commenting, so I wanted to thank you for making that special effort! I also added new blogs to the list that I already read. I really need to update that list in the sidebar...

Anyways, I am going to post a list of the people participating in the contest. It will also include a link to their first post, including their stories about their pets. They have been fun to read and someone even wrote one even though they were not participating. Other people should do that. If I missed you, let me know.

Wendy shared her animal story, but will not be reading along. Hopefully if I bring this back next year she will be able to participate!

Becky who talks about her list and her pets. I love her list, I own all those books from when I was a kid. And, for the themed reading challenge that is making the rounds she is going to try and read all the Beverly Clearly books. I remember when they were so 'in' when I was a kid.

Stephanie, from Stephanie's Confessions of a Book-a-holic, is in. I am starting to think there will soon be a blog called 'Challenge-a-holics'. (hehe)

Chris, from Stuff as Dreams are Made of, has his list up now. He is reading Kate DiCamillo books, I love love love her stuff. Because of Winn-Dixie and Despereaux were really good. I have not read Miraculous Journey Of Edward Tulane yet, but if I decide to buy a book for this challenge in the future, I think that will be it. Oh, right, to see Chris' post go here.

Ames, and Max, from Thrifty Reader is joining in! Since I rarely see her join challenges I feel special.

Heather, aka Orange Blossom Goddess, is in too.

Nymeth is in, you can see her list and her animals by clicking over to her blog.

Zeek is in too, she has her post up about joining in, but no list or story has been posted yet.

Ladytink is in, but I am not sure which blog she will be posting her list on. She does plan on reading Kavik the Wolf Dog, which I have never even heard of before.

Callista is in. She has a great pic of her dog included in her post, it is very cute!

Mollie, from Biblioharlot's Bookshelf, is in. Her list is still pending.

Nicola decided to join in and her list is up now. She is reading some of the authors that I liked as a kid!

Julia, from A Piece of My Mind, has signed up, but I have not seen her list posted yet.

Ex Libris decided to fit one more challenge, and has joined the ranks. That's pretty cool because I 'met' her hosting a Reading Challenge last year for Remembrance Day.

And then we have Debi and her daughter Annie joining in. Annie should make people proud, she just read Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien and she is ten! Very impressive in the days of Gossip Girls, which is a favourite with people up through high school around here.

Sandi, from I Live to Read, will be joining in also! Her list is forth-coming.

Butterfly Amy has her list up, she just joined earlier today.

Kim in Ohio is in too, but I do not know where she blogs from! So, we will have to wait and see.

Bonnie has also decided to join in. She is going to post about her animals with her book reviews, but you can go to that post to see her list and hear about her cat, Duchess.

Carl V. from Stainless Steel Droppings is in, his list will be forth-coming!

Amanda from A Patchwork of Books posted her list tonight. She has some rather, um, interesting animals. Actually, I have never heard of one of them before, let alone knew people had them as pets!

So, anyone else care to join in? Remember, you can join in later if you find that you have the time that you did not think you would have!
