Wow, that is way more than I expected to do! And I enjoyed almost all of it! I would call this my best book challenge ever; I didn't push myself to uncomfortable limits like last year, but I kept plugging and accomplished a lot. Being able to listen to an audio book for part of the time was a tremendous help -- I could get a few things done, but still feel like I was participating. The networking time was also a nice break. The challenge rules have evolved in really helpful ways since the first one.
I basically enjoyed everything I read, too. Breathe My Name has the odd distinction of being both the best and most memorable book I read, and the most disappointing.
I received 21 comments, which means I will donate $21 to the local Friends of the Library. Thanks to everyone who commented and made it more fun!
