Yes, I’m a big fat liar. I swore off challenges, and yet now I seem to have signed myself up for a second challenge this year. Sue me.

This one, hosted by Bibliobabe, has some of the most awesome prizes out there and its in honor of Read, Remember, Recommend by Rachelle Knight. Post below are the snazzy and utterly enticing details of the challenge. I’m going to aim for the “Library of Congress Calls Me Daddy” challenge level of 20 books. =)

Wish me luck! Leave a comment if you plan on signing up as well. Maybe we can combine forces to win the whole shebang!

You can sign-up here.
