By the skin of my teeth, I FINISHED MY FIRST ONLINE READING CHALLENGE!!!! I was reading and listening to the last two books until 8:00 p.m. EST. I really enjoyed all the selections and ended up only swapping out two.  Ironically, the two that I swapped in were set in New York. I am taking this as a sign that I should go to New York! Now, I am just keeping my fingers crossed that I get selected for the grand prize :)

From looking at this list, I also realize that all of these books were presents; I got them as gifts from people who thought that I would enjoy the story.  It's so exciting to still be unrwapping gifts years later.
