  1. Wow, your bookshelf isn't too bad. A lot of them have been on there for less than a year. I don't even count those on my list and I still have 20 books! LOL Thanks for joining my challenge!

  2. Darling, you've won a book from my website, but you didn't leave me your email address. Can you please send a quick email to nocturnalbookreviews at gmail dot com, so I can contact you properly? Thank you (you have 48 hours to email me)

  3. Best of luck on this challenge. It sounds fun- I have actually been doing this on my own. I moved all the books I have that I haven't read onto three shelves (20+ books) and I am only allowing myself to pick from the shelves throughout most of the month. I do let myself read some other books once or twice a month. I must say that I have cut down my books to read by a lot. Some have been fantastic and some have been so so. By the way- I love The Last Unicorn. I also love the movie. Hope you enjoy it!

    Thanks for following my blog. I am following you back!
