You can do it Kristie Faye! WE only need to be done with 16 books by the end of the month. Then we will only need to read 7 books in December. (8 books a month)


message 6: by Beth (new)

Beth Knight (zazaknittycat) Emilee, I love how you have this all worked out :)!


Christina Stind Why only 7 in December? 8 books a month for 12 months is 96 books - so we're lacking 4 that has to be put in somewhere - or am I missing something?

Good luck Kristie Faye, I want to read The True story of Hansel and Gretel at some point - it sounds really good!

Kristie (spedkristie) 17. I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak

I liked this book well enough.....I loved the story, the concept, even the characters. I know it was written for teens, but I don't get the Hype behind it. I felt The Book Thief was much much better! Can anyone help me out with it

I can't wait, either. My daughter just bought advance tickets so we can go see it at midnight. We always go together - tradition!








message 26: by Barbara (new)

Barbara Vazquez | 26 comments It's a nice tradition, Franny. I saw all the previous movies with the same group of friends, but I moved to another city last year so to this one I'll have to go by myself.


message 27: by Kristie (new)

Kristie (spedkristie) Me and my boyfriend go to the midnight showings as well..... last time we went with a group of friends but this time we will be solo......I have come to accept, I won't get book 6 done in time for the midnight showing, but it's not going to stop me from trying.
