This *challenge* is slightly frustrating. Many books on the list to choose from I've read just this year. But they don't count. (Like Mandy. Like Anne of Green Gables. Like Charlotte's Web. Like Alice in Wonderland. Like the Ramona books by Beverly Cleary. Like All-in-the-Kind family. Like Island of the Blue Dolphins. Like Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimph. Like Out of the Dust. Like Pride and Prejudice. Oh well.

I looked at the list and felt a bit of the same frustration at the # of books I had already read this year--but there are still plenty I haven't so I guess I will still join!

Thanks for joining the challenge. I'm sorry that the list got you so frustrated, too bad I hadn't thought of the challenge sooner!
