2015 Full House Reading Challenge

Since I stunk so badly last year at remembering to link things for challenges, I am limiting the number I am participating in this time around.

One of the few that I am going for this year is the 2015 Full House Reading Challenge hosted by Book Date.

I had lots of fun working out how to fill in each box and, if I had not lost my mind around the end of August, I would have completed the challenge - I had only four boxes left - including free choice! - all of which were easy and I read books that qualified for all of them. So, here's to another go at it! (Argh! and if I had realized that I didn't have to have reviews posted for all of them, I would have entered since I had completed the full house. Sigh. Well, now I know better.)

The Challenge: Complete the card below.  You can do it in any order you wish.  You are allowed "one free exchange", if there is something on the square you really dislike you may change it to something of your choice. Once you have played this free card that is it. Mention the exchange in the final summary post.

This year I am going to try to remember to pay attention to the challenges so that when I complete them, I actually manage to get the virtual kudos for doing so !

Well - I blew that didn't I - It's the end of May and I haven't added anything in ages.

  1. Welcome again, I am so sad that you missed out on linking for the Full House - but 2015 could be your year! I am doing a lot of challenges this year and I think the hardest part will be to remember rules, linking and who links and who doesn't!


Hi! I do read all of the comments and want to let you know that I really appreciate your stopping by and taking the time to leave a note. Work has fallen in on me and I have not had enough time to reply coherently lately so I apologize preemptively but still want to assure you that your comments are valued. I am using comment moderation to avoid using more annoying spam avoidance. Thanks for your patience.
