As you can see, I didn't get to everything. (If it is NOT bolded, then I didn't finish it). Sometimes that was my fault. Sometimes it wasn't. It's not my fault some of books were never at the library. My list was a bit too ambitious. But still, I read plenty this summer. For those that only read the blog when I write challenge wrap-ups, I often read more non-challenge reads than challenge reads. So I was busy. Trust me.

Great list! Did you read the short version or the extended version of The Stand? I love the extended version the best!

The Stand was one of the ones I got about halfway through before the due date came up. I was reading the extended version. I still have every intention of picking it up at some point.

Wow! How do you read so many books? I'm in awe!

I just tried leaving a comment, but blogger was being silly, so I'll try again! I've added you to our email list and should be sending out a new update tonight or tomorrow, depending on my motivation level. Long days at the hospital tend to drain a person after awhile. I also wanted to let you know that even though I haven't commented in awhile, I'm still a daily reader!

Take care!
