Let me just say that these titles haven't been finished because I don't enjoy them, because I think all are entertaining and beautifully written. I really haven't been deeply drawn into any of the three, and feel that I'll finish them... eventually. Furthemore, there are so many dishes to be baked and crafts to be constructed, that, in all honesty, I haven't had much time to sit down and read.
So in the hopes of preventing these types of pitfalls again, I will swear to participate in challenges that I must finish. Yes, must finish.
AND these CHALLENGES will produce results I can prove here. So you know I'm actually doing it.
1. A Banned Book
2. A Book with a Wartime Setting (can be any war)
3. A Pulitzer Prize (Fiction) Winner or Runner Up
4. A Children's/Young Adult Classic
5. 19th Century Classic
6. 20th Century Classic
7. A Book you think should be considered a 21st Century Classic
8. Re-Read a book from your High School/College Classes
Style/Wardrobe/ Clothing- Multiple Factors (Mandy's styles is awesome AND she's crafty.)
Crafts/ Recycling- Creative Leftovers (I can't wait to try making my own rubber stamps using her instructions.)
Inspirational/ Photography- Reading My Tea Leaves (What can I say? I just love this one.)
BTW: I cheated. I started Erica Bauermeister's The School of Essential Ingredients last night and already enamored.
