Cheryl Hager (cheryl_is_reading) | 16 comments Without a couple of short books, eleven books in a month is nearly impossible...

Cheryl Hager (cheryl_is_reading) | 16 comments Whoo-hoo, done with June's books!

My Quiet Pages (myquietpages) | 7 comments Wow well done. I went beginner level so I could read at my own pace...I know I couldn't get through 11 in one month.

Cheryl Hager (cheryl_is_reading) | 16 comments Hot damn, I'm done with July!

message 7: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl Hager (cheryl_is_reading) | 16 comments I will not be able to complete the specific August tasks. I did read quite a bit outside the challenge, so I'm inclined to think I would have finished it. Regardless, I start a new job soon and that's been taking up some time too.
