Hi Becky! I am wondering if you will be hosting the A-Z challenge again in 2011? It is one of my favorites and I am starting to think about next year's books!

I've been saying the same thing...not too many challenges next fact, I'm thinking I may JUST do Carl' year long challenges, aside from the mutual challenges I'm doing...which I would TOTALLY love to do with you now that I'm thinking of it :D How much fun would that be to pick 5 books for each other to read???? You give the best book recommendations in the WORLD!! Kim's comment is making me want to do the A-Z challenge again though even though I skipped it this year...that is a really fun one :)

Kim -- I haven't decided yet. If I do decide to host it again, I'll probably post about it next Sunday Salon.

Chris,I think it would be very fun to do the challenge with you where we recommend five books for each other. I'm not exactly sure of the rules you've got set up. But I'd love to look into it more. I know I've got some great books in mind for you :)
