    So glad I signed up to do this! I have a huge stack of Manga to get through and luckily for me I remembered just in time to do my kick-off post yesterday :)

    So, I’m wondering… Do I have to start and finish another TBR book or does the TBR book I’m currently working on count? I think it’s a dumb question but I figured I’d ask. I’ll probably go “duh” later but maybe someone else is addled like I am this morning. That’s the only reason why I’m waffling on “participating” – I have to work this weekend :(

    I’m so bad at getting myself on sign up lists now. I used to be so much better, but I have it on there now. Thanks for hosting. I’m so excited to get some reading done these next couple of days.

      Yeah an alum! So glad you enjoyed it last year and happy to have you back again. I hope you manage to make a dent in your TBR pile even if it is a small one!

    I accidentally posted my starting line early. I think I said 12:30 a day earlier. But it was evening by then so I just let it stay up. But I’ve done okay. I felt like I didn’t read much but I got through over half a book and finished it and am now over a quarter of a way through another. Considering I had a lot of interruptions and almost no reading time, that’s not so bad.

      LOL, I got very little reading done today. My Mom had her surgery and after I just felt spent.
