Book Bingo Update

Okay, folks, I admit it...I just a bit obsessed when it comes to book challenges.  I don't just do them.  I make sure I read ALL the things when I do them.  I am currently reading the last book needed to cover all the squares in the 2013 Book Bingo Reading Challenge created by Anne from Creativity’s Corner and Kristilyn from Reading in Winter.  That's right...one more "Everybody but me" book and I get to stamp a star on that lonely little empty square.
