I finished at least 9 so this gives me

—->  two (2) entries <—-

for the chance to win something! I think. I didn’t really do this for any prizes since I don’t even know what that might mean but I so excited to share my own happiness with doing so well with this.

* I have NO IDEA if the FORGOTTEN category will accept the Sherwood Anderson so that will be the iffy one…

Only three of the titles above were my selections when I originally signed up. I have noted these by green-fonting the category. But probably not FOR that category! Just sayin’.

Just for the record, my favorite of this list has to be the Hardy. LOVED it on audio! Least favorite was the WinesburgOH story collection. I am MOST proud of myself for tackling Stranger in a Strange Land (and also Atlas Shrugged which would have worked for the very long or woman-author category). If I wanted to and I do but don’t want to take the time at this moment, I could list/shuffle multiple entries for a few of these categories, as I’m sure all of us participants could do.  Sister Carrie had been on my tbr for-EVER, so I am glad to cross it off my must-read-someday list. I am glad to now know first-hand the Austen characters of Mansfield Park. Many of the books here are also books I am just glad to have read for social cred points, if such a concept exists. (OF COURSE, it does! #smirk)
