kimberly said...

This looks like such a awesome challenge. Sighing up :)

Monica Postma said...

I have question: Suppose I have a Bind-up sitting on my shelf that has two books in it. If I read the bind-up, would it count as two books or one?

Nana said...

Hi Evie, I'm interested in joining this challenge. But, since I am Indonesia, some of my books are by Indonesian authors or Indonesian translation. Is it okay if I make review in Indonesian in my blog for those books? Or must I make reviews in English only? How about books by Indonesian author? Can I include them to the list?

thanks before

Molli @ Once Upon a Prologue said...

I signed up! I'm being ambitious this year, but like you, Evie - I want to read more of what I WANT to read, and stop taking on so many ARCs, etc. :)
