Really...this is the last challenge I'm going to join...maybe! lol!! This one takes place over at the Book Awards Reading Challenge blog and the theme is award-winning books. You have a year to complete 12 books and there are prizes! I'm going to throw in one extra book 'cause it's a "skinny" book!

I need to follow suit and start reading again. I use to read constantly. Now when people ask me what is my favorite book, I have a hard time remembering. Read? A book? Huh?

Where did all of my free time go?
