Beth Joels (willowwhisper) | 19 comments Okay now. When participating in a reading challenge, should every book be one that you have not yet read, or do rereads count?

I usually encourage people to read different books, just to get them to push their boundaries. But, let's say for this challenge, re-reads count!

Where is everyone landing with their challenge? With just a few weeks left in December, I don't know if I will finish the challenge or not. I just have two books left to read-the book I've been meaning to read forever and the book my best friend loves.

I'm thinking about starting another one in January, so we have the whole year to read...and see how that goes!

I finished all but the 1st one. I'm going to try to get it in over this long weekend, but we'll see. I have so many books to finish that I've started. I'll come back with an update after next week!
