I've never completed a reading challenge other than MR's 48 hour challenge. I have so enjoyed reading the results of your many efforts that I may try one next year.

I'm afraid, however, that this one has me stumped. There's so much to choose from? How do you decide what themes to choose?

I will see if I have time for this one next year as it sounds fun. I like your themes and have no doubt you will complete it.

I just got my theme together. I like your combination.
