 How did it go this month?

Pretty good! 10 books is a solid start in my opinion. I've found that I read broader than I thought I did. It hasn't been too challenging to find categories for the books that I've read this month. I'm sure that will get a little harder as the months go on!

  1. That's fantastic effort, 2.5 books per week on average is fantastic! Keep up the great work ;) I <3 reading challenges but I think I'm too late to enter this year :(


Hi! Welcome to A Bookish Affair. If you leave a comment, I will try to either reply here or on your site!

As of 6/6/2011, this book is now an awards free zone. While I appreciate the awards, I would rather stick to reviewing more great books for you than trying to fill the requirements.
