  1. My list was pretty short so I did pretty good. I had to make a substitution for my last book as I needed to read a book for college and had always wanted to read Walden..but I'm about 70 pages from the end still. But close :)

    Here is my new, book dedicated blog with my original challenge post:

  2. hmmm... I like these challenges - going to have to think on it. I read the Killer Angels last spring when my daughters 6th grade class was assigned to read it. Wow. Really wonderful book. My brother's college major was military history and he highly recommended it when I asked him what he thought.
