Join the club! :-\

Sorry if it seems like I'm getting the December challenge up a bit earlier than usual, but with Thanksgiving being this Thursday for we Americans, I thought it good to get this posted before the holiday.

I read while riding the bus, but that's only about 20 minutes one way -- and provided the person behind me isn't yelling into her phone, as happened earlier this month. I also try to read at least half an hour before going to bed -- which can turn into a LOT more than that depending on the book/author and how early I have to get up. :D

Jessy, when you want to post a picture of the book, all you have to do is click on the words in the top right hand corner that say add book/author (when you are posting), and it will give you the choice for having the cover showing. You can just have the words with the link as well. I like both, since on the iPad the covers do not always show up in the app.
