    Still a great reading year and hope that bad health will soon be behind you. Did really well with the AWW challenge. You sure support them. All the best for a very good New Year.

    Honestly, you are amazing! Here’s to a great reading year in 2016. Hoping that your health improves and you’ll feel much better. And now to the books. 🙂

    Dear Shellyrae, Firstly – a 1000 thanks for the reviews you provide to us all. I, for one, would be the poorer without your guidance. Secondly – and more importantly – may you (and all your family) have good health throughout 2016, and may it be a year of peace and happiness for one and all. As they say in Scotland (where I am now) – ‘Happy Hogmanay! and lang may yer lum reek!’ (translation: long may your chimney smoke – ie: may you be warm and comfortable in your home!)

    Great stats Shelleyrae – next year I am limiting my challenges and expectations of numbers of books read as I have a busy year ahead of me – I’ll still be reading but not aiming for 200+.
