Hi Maggie. Nice to see you going for this challenge. I hope it is "perfect" to help you get those dusty books off the shelf.


Andrea AKA Catsos Person (catsosperson) | 1791 comments Maggie I played bingo for the first time this year and loved it so much, I'm doing it again for 2016. I found it to be enjoyable.

Maddie (shoegirl81) | 68 comments It's nice to finally have some time to finish books I started ages ago. Hopefully I'll be able to add three or four more to my list before I go back to work!
