Let the Games Begin!

It is the 20th! And we all know what that means, right? The official start to the Four-Legged Friend Reading Challenge. I am so excited, and I am so happy that so many people have joined in! Remember that you can join later if you want. This challenge has actually made missing Sandy much more easy to handle. Thanks for all the comments and to all the people that posted about their animals, it was great to read!

I am off to start my first book for the challenge! Happy Reading. Please post links to any of your reviews in either this post or the one that explains all the rules of the challenge.

I have some baby pictures of Sandy, so I will hopefully find time to scan them tomorrow. She came before digital cameras afterall.

The Reviews:

I will keep a listing of all the books reviewed on this post to make it easy to see what people have read and their thoughts about it.

  2. I've just now posted my reading list on my sidebar on my blog. There's only 2 books on it, and I've only just started one of them. I'm a slow reader because I have no time for reading. I'll be just squeaking by the Febuary deadline to do the bare minimum, but I'm enjoying myself already.

  6. Hello! I am so sorry to read about Sandy, Sam and Snowball. It must be a very difficult time for you. I just wanted to say thinking of you.

    I also wanted to say thanks so much for doing the meme and good answers. I hope you enjoyed it as much a I did.

    And finally (I have a lot to say today and it's only early yet!) sorry to be late but I would love to take part in the Four Legged Friend Reading Challenge. I have been compiling my list over night and will pop back and leave you a comment when I have posted it.

    In the meantime take good care and keep smiling.
