Steph (angel4492) | 28434 comments I had to edit my list because I read one of the books in Dec. Forgot I'd had it flagged for a challenge in 2013. Then, I read another. LOL! So, I've got two spots to fill, which I'll do after I've read something that fits.

ETA: Just realized this one is only 6 months long. So ... I'll re-add the one I read in Jan and set my challenge start date for the day I started that book. :D
