Heather Godwin (hpgodwin) | 84 comments I just started my list & challenge earlier this month too (I got some books I've already read this year to fit into the list so I'm not super behind). Anyway I really like your list & love the book Eats, Shoots & Leaves - should be required reading in schools ;)

Thanks. I found this challenge not that long ago, and it's surprising how many books I had read this year fitted nicely into the various categories. Eats, Shoots & Leaves was good. Hopefully it will make me stop and ask if I really need that bit of punctuation there.
