Aprilleigh (aprilleighlauer) | 548 comments I was going to do this last year, but between recovery from the move (cross-country) and everything else involved in settling in to a new place, plus having found it late in the year to begin with, it just didn't seem reasonable. One more source of stress, which is what it would have been for me at that point. This year I can enjoy it properly.

Aprilleigh (aprilleighlauer) | 548 comments Does anyone know how to add a checkmark after a book once I've read it?

Andrea AKA Catsos Person (catsosperson) | 1791 comments Hi,

Google something like "html code for check mark."

I used html that I found to check off book titles this year for a challenge with another group.
