Kelley (shewolf0316) | 0 comments I'll try it I guess. we'll see how it goes. It all depends on what I have in the queue of review books. Those always have to take priority.

Clarification needed though... What do you mean by "Read a book from a February B-day celebrant." do youmean an author who has a birthday in february or pick a book from a february birthday group member's book shelf?

Kasia It means read a book that's been shelved by one of our group's February B-Day celebrants, the full list is here: http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/2...
