I'm in.

Lol - I just checked my progress for July and was surprised to see my Judge a Book by It's Cover shelf only had one book on it. I double checked, and yes, I hadn't missed any. Apparently my "Ugly Book Cover" challenge in another group had a negative impact on my "Judge a Book By It's Cover" performance this month.
