    • Oh, I really like the Bucket challenge…it’s about reading from our own stacks. That fits in nicely with my journey through the TBR stacks of this blog.

      There’s a picture/link in the sidebar here.

      Thanks for stopping by, Tea….

      As for time management, I do my share of “piddling it away.” LOL

  2. Fantastic month of reading. I started out the year keeping track of where I saw a certain book, but have quickly lost control! But I know quite a few are your recommendations.

    • Because of all the blogs I have, I had trouble tracking things last year. Now it’s so obvious to me…track everything on one blog, including challenges. So far, I’m feeling more in control of it all. Thanks for stopping by, Nise.
