Congrats, Becky! I'm determined to finish this one, but I'd better get my butt in gear 'cause I still have four books to go.

Congratulations on finishing the challenge! I have I'm in the middle of my next to last book for this one. Hoping to have it finished by the 1st!. I just read your fabulous review of Never Let Me Go. I just finished that one. It's going to end up being one of my favorites of this challenge I think.
