  4. Happy New Year! You had a great year in books and did way better than I did in challenges. I didn’t even finish our challenge. 🙁

    Why don’t you tell me when you want to read Persuasion, and we can read it together…maybe host a readalong? Just not this month, LOL. I have an annotated version I want to read!

  5. Happy New Year to you all!
