  1. You are rocking most of these challenges, Bea! I wish I were doing half so well with mine!

    1. Some months are better than others but I am doing well overall. You can still make progress with yours, there's still time!

  2. WOW, that's a lot of challenges, Bea, I think you've got more going than me this year, and for most of them, you're doing really well! And you still have time to get back on track with the others, too :)

    1. Thanks Lexxie. I have plans to get caught up on the classics but I figure anything I read for that is a win. :)


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing from my readers. Let's talk!
