Chris Blocker It's likely I won't, but what's the fun of a challenge that isn't challenging?

Joseph Michael Owens True.

Chris Blocker Thanks. Guess this means I don't have to read anymore books for the rest of this year.

Well, technically no. But if you get out of practice for the next two months, how are you going to keep on track during next year's challenge? :)

Joseph Michael Owens At least a few of us are making their goals; I'm going to probably miss mine by quite a bit!

Suggestion: Read some poetry or children's books. Or some Calvin and Hobbes (the comic, not the theologian and the philosopher). :)
