Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes...I am EXCITED!!!! This is definitely one of my all-time favorite challenges! Now let's just hope I don't blow it. ;)

Trish - do audio books count for this challenge, or only "traditional" books? I'll join either way, just wanted to clarify the rules. :)

Melissa - Shhh I'm Reading said...

I'm excited for this one to start too! I've put off starting some non-fiction because I wanted them to count.

Trish said...

@debi - yay!!!!!

@heather - yes!! Audio is fine

@melissa - don't have to wait anymore!

Sorry so short. On mobile at airport.

Trish - I feel really bad. I thought it started when you put up the original post, so I read the book from then. Does that still count as I finished it just before the 1st? Note to self - must learn to pay attention to details.

TRish, I will post a link of my books again. You know I lost my other blog to malware.

Another thing, your blog takes a lot of time to load. Can you please see to it?

BTW, everything distils into reading is my new blog. Please do visit it, subscribe to it or follow it! Do help me spread the word.

Trish said...

*Scrap Girl - Oh don't worry! If you can squeeze in another read, that would be ideal, but if not--just happy reading. :)

*Gautami - I have never had a problem loading my site or have had other people mention it, so I think it could possibly be your computer (I'm my grandmother's dinasour of a PC right now and my page loaded fine). Wish I could tell you something more helpful...

The link for We Bought a Zoo should be...

Sorry about that. That's book two for me already. I'm enjoying this years focus on non-fiction so far. But I'm not sure what I'll do for my out of the ordinary choice????

Argh, mine didn't work either!

If that doesn't work then I am truly cursed with bad punctuation - and memory! And typing skills, and...hmm, what else.

Corinne said...

So, I tried to post a review this morning and Mr. Linky has disappeared :) I have no idea why, but it wasn't working over at the classics challenge either :)

I'm sorry I'm late with the May review. This is really turning out to be a challenge for me, but I'm promising to myself to pull through. Thank you for stopping by my blog Trish. It's motivating. =)
