100+ Reading Challenge Wrap-Up


I have completed the 100+ reading challenge a while ago (back in August). I'm so lazy to do wrap-up posts.

I remember being so worried when I signed up for this challenge thinking "100 books! - J. Kaye is nuts, I'm nuts for thinking I can do it". But, yep, those extra minutes before work, reading in the car through lunch, and those times I've had to lie and say I had major stomach issues (white lies) - in order to have some peace and quiet to finish off a chapter have really paid off.

Your site looks so cute. I haven't been there in a while because I read your posts on Google Reader. Anyway, Congrats! I finished, too. But, I'm keeping my list going for the rest of 2009 to see how many books I read in a year. I like this challenge!

I like the new site. Maybe it's just my computer, but the font seems a little light to read. Could it be darker? I don't mind, really, if you prefer it to be the gray as I read the posts on GOogle.

CONGRATS on 100 books! Very impressive :-) I'm only at like... forty. Good thing that's a challenge I didn't sign up for!

Congrats on making it to 100! Oh, and happy reading for the next 100, too. :)

Woo Hoo! Way to go. I've been out of town for a few days, so I don't know when you changed your look -- but I love it!!
