Connie N. | 3367 comments Wow, good for you, Caroline! I tend to just add my books to whichever letter comes first, so I don't finish up words very quickly. But then when I get closer to the end, then I'm done with a lot of words all at once.

Thanks Connie, I'll probably start well and then get stuck with loads of words with one letter missing!
