Challenge Complete: Antonym Challenge

January 1, 2012 - December 31, 2012


Last year Tasha at Book Obsessed asked: Are you ready to take the challenge!?!

And I said: She's kidding right? Me, not take a challenge? That's like Star Trek not boldly going. Or Holmes not detecting. Of course, I'm ready for the challenge. This one and that one and those over there too. And this one sounded particularly fun.

The goal was to read books by matching antonyms in the titles. And I went for the top level:
