LynnB Hi Jan - One nice thing about this challenge is that you only have to read one from this list each month, and you can still get it finished. That sure makes it more manageable than some challenges.

Jan (booklover777) | 91 comments Thanks Lynn, Jill & DJ! The trick is not to get sidetracked by all the wonderful new books that are published every year. So many books, so little time!

Hi Jan. Great list. I've actually never read any of the books on your list. Now I'll have to check out your books. I'm to-be-read list just gets longer and longer. Good luck reading.

Jan (booklover777) | 91 comments Thanks for the extension. I also want to add 2 alternates for my challenge.
Iron Angel by Alan Campbell
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
The last title also qualifies for my book club so I can kill two birds with one stone!

Hi Jan. Love your counter. Miss GP gave us that idea. It's been so much fun reading everyone lists and looking at their tickers.

Jill (Jillybeans) | 4467 comments Great ticker Jan. Who couldn't use more sunshine?

message 12: by Jan (new)

Jan (booklover777) | 91 comments It's nearly the end of March and I've only read one of my alternates Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. I'd better get reading!

Jan (booklover777) | 91 comments I've read 2 more from the list: Blindsighted and Obedience. Both were very good reads.
