    Hi Kathy! I didn’t even know you had a blog, how rubbish is that? I’m well chuffed you’re doing the challenge with me though… 🙂

      As my blog is rather sporadic, I’m not surprised you didn’t know that I had a blog! I’m looking forward to taking part in the challenge 🙂

      Happy New Year!

    One down, woohoo! I have to admit, I’ve been neglecting my challenges (even my own) quite shamefully so far this year. Maybe now I’m over my reading slump and finally getting to the end of my enormous library pile, I might actually get stuck into some of my own books at last and start ticking off some titles! 🙂

      I should really log into this blog more often…

      I’m sure that I’ve read stuff that qualifies for some of the categories, but actually updating stuff and being conscious of whether I’m reading for the challenge? Not so much…
