That's the good thing about doing so many challenges, your book will always fit somewhere!

Agnieszka (agnieszka7) | 542 comments I didn't think I'll be able to complete one Bingo but I was wrong once again I completed 4. With some shifting and rearanging I was able to fit all 20 books I finished in February. I like the challenge so much I'll work on it until I find another five books to complete the entire 'board' ;-)
