Mine looks good.  I had a typo in a title (Medicine and the Mobby should be Mob), but it doesn't affect my total.  This is one of the lowest total books read for me in a challenge, but I got my buddy and secret books read so I say success!   Thanks to Gina my reading buddy for such good picks.  Strangers and Painted Faces were two of my favorite reads.

And thanks to you, too, for choosing Painted Faces for me. I absolutely loved it. :) So different from everything I've been reading lately, and I needed that.

I am fixin to post the Total Results and give out credits but before I did I wanted to give you ladies that want to join the next challenge the link to it. It doesn't start until April 7th but I wanted to get everything read to go before I went on vacation at the end of March. It will only be a 4 week challenge and I made a few minor adjustments but nothing major. If you are a winner and want me to keep a credit for the next challenge let me know.

wow, i did better overall than i thought i'd do this time around.

since the next challenge ends before i'm home from my vacation, i'll be missing it for sure,. i'd definitely like to know about the one after that though, whenever it happens!  they definitely push me to get more knocked off Mt. TBR.  :)

OMG--I didn't realize the results were up. I think this is my first big win!

Of course I'm doing the next challenge!  Sending credit, Jamie

For anyone who's interested, here are the March 2014 releases I've got marked on my GR shelf.  In anticipation of the next challenge, here's the April 2014 releases link as well.

Please keep in mind that the April book release dates have not been verified yet, and I will also probably be adding a bunch more (except for 3/2104, I usually end of up anywhere from 80-120 books on the release shelves).  I go through about once a week to try to pin down exact release dates and/or changes.  Then a few days before the end of the month, I really try to get as many of the dates verified as possible, usually by going to author's FB pages.

I see it begins on 4/7. So is anyone going to hold out and save The King for the challenge?  I highly doubt it!  I know I'll be reading it on 4/1!

I will be holding out but only because we are going to be on Vacation all that week so I won't have time to read it. But I am excited to get my Brother fix.

I got my credit! And what a nice surprise it was - I didn't think I'd be even close.  Thanks for a very fun game.
