I was just notified by 3M at 1 More Chapter that I won the grand prize in her By the Decades Challenge. For this challenge I read 13 books (decades 1880-2000). I really struggled with this challenge because by the end of the year I was burned out and didn't want to read the books I selected. This was one of the first challenges I joined, and I was a little over-ambitious in my selections. But, I pushed through, used one alternate, and finished the challenge. Yay!!!
Thanks, Michelle for the great challenge and the prize! I am so excited and can't wait to browse Amazon for my book choice. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! Like a kid in the candy store (or more likely a bookaholic in a bookstore).
*I have selected Half of a Yellow Sun, which is fitting because it is a book I discovered through the blogosphere. Yippee!
