    Wow, Kimba! That is quite an accomplishment. As a reader, I’m totally impressed. As an author, I can’t thank you enough for your dedication. You not only read, but take the time to write a thoughtful and even review every single time. Thank you so much for your commitment.

  2. Laurel-Rain Snow

    Great job! I did one challenge: Read the Books You Buy, targeting books purchased from June 2015 through December 2016. I read 100 books for that challenge! I will participate again in 2017.

    Love seeing you hit and exceed all your reading goals. Looks like you’re getting into your audios and keeping up with new ones you get really well. The end of the series one would be particularly difficult.

    I think my list is going up in the next few days.
