Thank you to Julie over at My Book Retreat for hosting this challenge!!! I got a lot of books read that have been sitting on my bookshelves, in addition to all the review books I had to read. Now I'm off to set up for the Fall into Reading Challenge being hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days.


  1. Wow, you did a phenomenal job on the challenge, Kristin! That has to feel good. I didn't set the bar nearly as high for my summer challenge and still only managed 5 out of 8 books :( So good for you, kiddo!

  2. Wow! You did a great job on the challenge. I see several that I'd like to add to my fall list. See you at the Fall Into Reading Challenge. ;-)

  3. @Mary - it helps that I am home most of the time and have plenty of reading time!!!

    @Janet - I will have to check out your list for the Fall Reading challenge...I am still tweaking mine!
