  1. I so need to do this challenge instead of acquiring new ones-and getting several from the library each week. I have several hundred unread novels in my library. You probably do too. I love your header.

  2. Thanks! It's sad that those shelves have had about 35 new additions since I took those pictures.

    I do have a million unreads. It's sad. I have about 10 years of crazy book collecting to catch up on.

  3. THats quite the list! This is my first year doing reading challenges... it will be interesting to see how we do! :)

    ( I am doing the Won Books CHallenge and the Chunksters Challenge)
