Good for you for signing up for level two! I had a goal to read sixty books this year so I only signed up for level one for 2015 but I think that won't be a problem. :)
Good luck with the challenge!

I can never do challenges. :)

Too stressful for me.

Even the Goodreads one is a bit much, and I am behind this year.

ENJOY your reading week, and best of luck in the challenge.
