Sashana | 6358 comments This challenge started on 11/11/11 so you can back track and add books from then, Karla. That's what everyone is doing. Good luck with your reading, I hope it picks up soon.

The books that I read when I had the time do not fit the challenge, they were all written before 2000.


Sashana | 6358 comments Aww that sucks :(
