lady-schrapnell said...

I just posted on my LJ that I'm starting (though it's so late and I'm so exhausted now that I'll really just be reading the first book while brushing my teeth and then collapsing). (Using OpenID sign-in to get the LJ address showing up - hope it will work, but I'll re-comment if necessary!)

MotherReader said...

Okay, I started at 5:00 at the pool. Fortunately there weren't lots of moms I know, so I could get right down to reading. I'll start my posting my reviews tomorrow.

I didn't see till now I was supposed to post when I started (3PM EST Fri), but I'm out of the running now anyway. I started out so enthusiastically too :( Oh well. I'll remember this for next year, though. Incidentally, I am still reading just for fun anyway, starting my 4th book now. My blog is http://amyaaronandthemini-wheats.blogspot.com/ Good luck to everyone else!
