The How To's:

Use Kay's answers to create your own challenge. There's no limit to how many books you read for the challenge. Use your creativity for this one :)

For example - if the EotM lives in Florida you could read a book set in Florida, or read a book from her favorite series, or read a book where the main character participates in the EofM's hobby, etc.

Kay (Brigidsmomma) Compton (brigidsmomma) | 565 comments How is everyone doing on their challenges? I am managing to keep up with my reading, doing at least 2 books per day so far this month and whittling away at my TBR list... I am also feeding the book addiction - I got my dear hubby his own Kindle for Christmas and proceeded to load it with titles I've already got on my cloud that I know he will enjoy... to the tune of about 250 books, give or take a dozen or so...! Maybe this will help keep him out of trouble! On today's list is a series of three books I've been wanting to read for a while now... I want to see if I can knock them out and get them done before Christmas tomorrow! Any bets as to whether or not I'll get it done?

It's slow going for me. I've been a lot busier than I thought I would be. I'm hoping that after Christmas things will slow down and I can get some reading accomplished.


Kay (Brigidsmomma) Compton (brigidsmomma) | 565 comments Hey all! Today is our 21st wedding anniversary, and just for today, I have a special challenge for anyone who is interested... How about beginning a new book today, one that is either a 2nd chance romance (this is my Hubby's 2nd marriage), a book that is the 21st in a series, or the 21st book on your TBR as of today? I'd be interested in seeing if anyone picks up on this challenge. Also, today is our youngest greyhound, Greek's 2nd Birthday! So a greyt day to all!


message 13: by PepperP0t (new)

PepperP0t congratulations Kay! your timing is excellent. I'm picking up a book I put down last week, it's a romance but the wording isn't working for me. it was unrequited love on both sides (with others) the first time around.
