Some of Bev's Favorite Quotes...

Attention All Challengers! 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!

OK. First of all, I'm just impressed! That's a lot of books. And you kept track of them all (my downfall sometimes). And out of all those books, the only one I remember reading as "The Spy Who Came in From the Cold" back in 1984.

Now to see if I can cram 48 more into the rest of the year so I can reach my Mount TBR ultimate goal....

I'm thoroughly impressed! I have been sitting here wondering if I will even make the goal myself since I'm only on pace for 80-something...
You've done an outstanding job!
