Wow. Grabbing pom poms to cheer you on!
Thanks! :D I just finished TBR book #10 of 12, so I *think* I should be able to make that one from this year. Finished the Women and Animal challenges, but don't think I'll be able to knock out IKVXYZ for the alphabet. Maybe V.
This is with work and school, and I don't really start focusing on the challenges until the end of the year; I'm able to fill most of it just with what I'm reading throughout the year anyways.
This year's Women challenge still isn't posted, and she hasn't been active since last month on her blog or FB, so....
