 Danielle The Book Huntress  (gatadelafuente) | 3737 comments Hey, Mheghan. How did you like Artemis Fowl? I loved it.


message 5: by Megan (new)

Megan | 546 comments I'm listening to it on audio book, on chapter 4 or 5 I believe. This is only the second audio book I've tried and am really enjoying it. The narrator is great and so is the story. I like this one more than the Percy Jackson books, I just couldn't get into them.

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments Excellent, Mheghan! You did it perfectly. It's YOUR thread, set it up the way you like and use it to organize your challenges or book reads - whatever. It's all yours :)

message 12: by Megan (new)

Megan | 546 comments lol, I had so many sticky notes floating around my purse trying to keep everything organized, but I like this system much much better :) Also, for my yearly and 6 month challenges, people post so often it was hard to find my own posts anymore. I think this will work much better for me.
