  3. […] I didn’t have that many goals for this than to read as much as I can, participate on the twitter chats, update what I was reading and participate on some of the challenges. I feel that I did really well on all of these because even though I ended up DNF:ing one book, I had so many other great books, I met some awesome people on both of the chats I participated and I took part on at least two of the challenges. If you are interested in seeing what I read each day, you can see it here. […]

    • Blankets was great! The art style and the prose was really beautiful and even though I would have liked it to end maybe little differently, I understand because it’s a autobiography.
