Some of Bev's Favorite Quotes...



Attention All Challengers! S0....life here on the Block has been, shall we say, challenging since I got back from vacation. I cam back to work to no computer (not hooked up after our office move) and my laptop at home has gone on strike. It looks like the Check-in Posts for the Just the Facts & Mount TBR challenges will wind up happening at the end of July instead of the regularly scheduled mid-point. But they are coming. Stay tuned!

You Read How Many Books?

You Read How Many Books?
Reading Challenge
2014

This year's host is Gina @ Book Dragon's Lair.  Amy at My Overstuffed Bookshelf has hosted the 150+ challenge the last few years, and is allowing Gina to host this year, with changes :-).
Challenge begins January 1st, 2014 thru December 31, 2014. Books started before the 1st do not count. You can join at anytime.  This time 'round we have three levels to choose from--having sailed along at the 150+ level for a couple of years, I'm going to go ahead and sign up for Level 2.
