Joining My First Challenge

Well, I've decided to inch into the challenge waters and enter my very first-ever timed (i.e., non-perpetual) reading challenge! I'm a terribly slow reader (life seems to always get in the way), and I'm very anal-retentive about my reading, but I'm going to try to just fit my next few reads into some of these categories. We'll see how I do.

Enjoy your first challenge! If you're anything like me, you'll soon find yourself addicted. ;)

Eva, I will enjoy it! I'm just such a slow reader, it's taking forever to finish the first book.
