I love to cook too Emily! Especially various dinners like Chicken with rice and I also love to bake various things like Apple Turnovers!
I'm glad that you enjoy cooking Amber! It's one of my most favorite activities to do at home!

I have just taken that quiz and I haven't heard of the Tinder Box story before. Sorry! :) But it sounds like an interesting story and it reminded me of a Brothers Grimm story called "The Blue Light" where a soldier calls upon a dwarf everytime he lits up a magic pipe.
I am currently reading The Chocolate War
and so far, I am really enjoying this book! I am reading it because I heard that it was banned many times and I wanted to see why it was banned. I'm almost to the ending, so I'll have to see how the book ends!

WOOO HOOO!!!! I have finally completed my challenge!!!! So many books to read in just a few months!!! Right now, I am thinking about a new challenge for next year, which would be to just keep count of how many books I'll read in 2011 and I'm probably will be reading more chapter books in the future.

Thanks Natalie! I'll check those out! I definitely love children's books that I will read just about anything dealing with children's books! :)
Wow!!! over 10,000 pages already!!! You're almost there!!!
Sorry! I have been kind of lazy lately and so I haven't really been reading a lot of books lately because I usually read up to 30 pictures books a month, but I just got too lazy to read so many books this month. But, hopefully by the end of August, I'll pick up the pace and start reading the remainder books for my goal! Wish me luck!!!
