Jayme (reading_belle) I'm sorry, I know I've said that I will join in this challenge but I've decided that I don't want to join any new challenges till next year because there are several books that I wanted to read this year but can't fit in to any challenges and I can't read a lot while taking classes

Its okay, Trish, I am super proud of you for trying...I could only get through 6 books that fit in THANKSGIVING...AUTUMN was a little harder than I thought...all those "U"s.
