  1. Sheesh! You get a gold star for being an Oraganization Queen with this post!! I'm afraid to break down my reading lists by challenges. If I do, I'll just see how far behind I am!!

  2. haha! Well, it was mostly just cut n paste from last month's list but I am a very list-centered type of person. I just love crossing something off a list!

    I think part of the appeal of the book challenges is making the lists.
