For the third year I'm aiming to climb Mt. Everest with the idea that I'll be able to build a rocket ship when I get to the top and actually make it to Mount Olympus up on Mars....but my official goal for 2015 will be to knock another 100 books off the TBR stacks. I'll be posting the books as they come.

They were actually four novellas. But a pretty solid collection.

And I just added two new books to my Nook due to your new blogpost, Bev. Not that I'm blaming you or anything. Much. ;-)

Oh, Cath, I'll take the blame for being an enabler...the more you add this year, the better chance you'll join me for another round of Mt. TBR next year. ;-)

Cath Russell LOL! Absolutely. And I'll forgive you because the two I got sound really *good*. :-D
