I didn't do too bad, I guess, on my last attempt at this, scoring 165 points. Coulda done better, but some of the book choices on the list just didn't seem to make it into my hands. This round, though, seems right up my alley because there are several Christian fiction options....woohoo!

So, here we go again! :o)


  1. This one looks like so much fun, I've decided to give a try, too. :)(My 1st challenge).

  2. Good for you! Be careful, though...they get addictive! :o)

  3. Sounds tough, but fun! You'll do great!


  4. Oooo girl this looks tough...but I have faith in you! ;-)
