ooh the challenge will be back, no worries! I am not a computer, but I do read everyday for 3 hrs. Usually not all in one sitting and sometimes I manage 5 hrs when it's a book I cannot put down!

t helped that I had good ARC's scheduled and that after being ill I was determined to build up my advanced posts. Good luck with your plan!

Cripes, you did GREAT! My original goal was 26 books and out of that 26, I read 13. I also had 4 add-ons that I read, bringing the totals to 30 and 17. Sort of meh, but half/half is better than I expected. I challenged myself to only do ARCs, tours and purchased-books-I'll-die-if-I-don't-review next month. We'll see how I do. ;)

Thanks for hosting this wonderful month! I really got a lot done on my ARCs! I hope this happens again next year so I can get caught up again :)

I am sure you did fine. I would have nailed my list, if one I didn't add more arcs and two I didn't read two non-arc books..LOL

Way to go Kimba!!! I'm impressed...and slightly ashamed. I'll have to get my post ready to go, but I'm kind of afraid to see how badly I did, lol.
