Yes.  I know.  I already have 30-some challenges.  Plenty to read.  But....I did this one last year and it fit in with what I was already reading and caused no extra challenge stress whatsoever.  Really.  (no, I didn't imagined it)  And, so, I am drinking the reading challenge Kool-Aid and signing up for just one more....
