Reading Challenges:
I think I bit off more than I can chew or
My eyes are bigger than my stomach or basically
Got more than what I can handle.

I completed a couple, partially got through others, and the rest went out the window.

c'est la vie

For 2011 I decided to create lists for the challenges selected and actually put them into a blog calendar.

On the catchup agenda:
1. Awards - eeeek, I've got a pile of them to distribute to others.
Thanks again to those who sent them my way!

2. Book Fashion - I gotta work on more of these fun posts. Any special requests out there? Which book would you like to see Book Fashioned by me?

3. Blog backup - I want to start doing this once a month so that I can have a copy of all the good stuff.
