Ann (annrumsey) | 14417 comments How have you done on your list Sherry? I am not as brave as you to list them up front. I know much of your 2018 reading has been for your bookstore events. I bet you’ve read several of the ones you planned.

those are the ones that i read, ann. the pressure of having the list gives me agita (LOL), so i honetly don't plan what books i am going to read, i read and then fill them in where they fit. i know carol says that's cheating but it's the only way i can actually participate with the determination list. i swore off them years ago.

Ann (annrumsey) | 14417 comments Same for me Sherry; I wait and list as I go. If I list them up front I will never read those specific books. Maybe the reason we have to do it this way is because of the massive size of the list of books we want to read. 😀📚📚📚
