woW WoW - you are blazing the trail my girl! Well Done ;)
Yes, to needing a buddy for the buddy read - probably will do that with elena 's annual buddy readathon - which I love and always watchfor so I'll announce it and we can participate - always lots looking for buddies :) and colouring options would be some book with space for colouring - maybe a journal type or outright colouring book - these also get offered for reviews.
So pleased you're here and I do hope you'll enjoy the Spying !

One of the reasons I wanted the challenge to begin Dec 1 - so they'd have value all year rather than just read and dismissed with the ending of another challenge. Unless they were needed to complete the other challenge - then they'd count for both ;)

Arnetta | 8 comments I'm a bit unsure on some of the choices... found i'm guessing really means 'found'...like in a box of books in the top of a dumpster at my storage facility - that's what I'm going with anyway, hope that's ok. Freebie - one given to me or another found that cost nothing? Not feeling terribly 'bright' at the moment. Sorry!
