    Wow! What a tremendously fun challenge. And yes, you nailed it! Three huzzahs for you! Are you going to do it again this year?

        I officially started reading again today during SSR; previous to today, I’d used that sacred time to grade and I think that’s part of the reason why I didn’t make my Goodreads goal last year. I don’t want to set any reading goals because I don’t want to be disheartened so I’ll live vicariously through you. 😀
