  1. I have so many challenges this year I just can't do any more. Hopefully in 2009 if it is runing again as it's a really fun idea. Good luck this time around!

  2. LOL Is my obsession THAT obvious?

    Glad to see you've joined! :)

  3. rhinoa - I just sign up for the challenges; if I complete them, it's all good, if not, no big deal

    nicola - I copied you! But people have to know how I say it in my head

    joy - that's a lot of Mr Linkys over there! It's fun just to try these challenges; it's all about making lists.

  4. Hey wait! How did this happen? You just signed up now!?! I must have seen this post through GoogleReader vs the A ~ Z Challenge Mister Linky sign up.

    Needless to say, I'm happy that you are formally a participant now. :) So . . . are you going to link all your reviews to their proper letters!?!

    Happy Linking! :)

  5. joy - *clunks head* I thought I was signed up, but I was browsing around and saw I wasn't linked on the linky list of participants. I'll start adding some titles and authors. Good thing it's the March Break!


Thanks for commenting, so nice of you to visit.

(I'll try without the letters for a while - so please dont be a spammer! Let's try no anonymous users)
