  1. Heather, I'm interested to hear what you think of the Karen Carpenter book. I always liked the Carpenters' music, and Karen struck me as somewhat naive and tragic.

    Good luck on your challenge!

  2. I haven't done any reading challenges, but this is one I could probably do pretty well on. Maybe next year when my life isn't quite so chaotic.


Thanks for leaving your comments! I love reading them and try to reply to all!
