Fall Challenge Status

Remember back in October when I posted about the Fall Reading Challenge. Well, how are you guys coming along with your books? With the holiday's fast approaching, time is really at a premium. Will you be able to finish in time with only 12 more days left. I have to be honest, at the start of December I was afraid I wouldn't meet my challenge. Now though, I only have two more books to read and I will be finished.

If you were a part of this challenge and you have a blog, email me and I will add your link at the bottom of this post. If you just participated and you don't have a blog, email me anyway and I will add you as a participant.

Wow Jill, you're doing great!

I might just barely finish. It all depends on how busy things get between now and the 31st. I'll be done with my current read today then only two more books on the list.

It's been lots of fun and I've read some wonderful books that have been sitting on my TBR pile for far too long. Thanks!

Yay! you're almost done! I don't think I'm going to make it :( I should start looking to see though... I know that I haven't read the category romance yet. Sigh.
