Buy One Book and Read It Wrap Up

Amy from My Friend Amy hosted a challenge in which she asked us to buy a book a month and read it. I have already bought my 12 books and have read and reviewed them.

To read about the challenge and to learn about other options for joining in the fun, visit the challenge blog here. To see what others have bought and read, click on the this link.

Here are the books I bought and read:

Out of Boneville by Jeff Smith (B+)
Artemis Fowl the Graphic Novel by Eion Colfer (A)
French Lessons by Peter Mayle (B+)
The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly (B+)
The Great Cow Race by Jeff Smith (A+)
Mouse Guard by David Peterson (C)
Old Man's Cave by Jeff Smith (B+)
Ghost Circles by Jeff Smith (B+)
Treasure Hunters by Jeff Smith (B+)
Crown of Horns by Jeff Smith (B)
Memoirs of Cleopatra by Margaret George (B+)
Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransome (A)

My favorites were the Bone series books by Simth, The Lincoln Lawyer, and Swallows and Amazons.

Thanks to Amy for hosting this challenge and I hope you all continue to buy books and read them!

Well, first of all - thanks for the link to the challenge. I hope Amy does this again next year, as I would very much be interested in signing up.

Secondly - CONGRATULATIONS!!! I cannot imagine reading 12 brand new books in 3 months (or less) time! Will you reward yourself with a trip to the bookstore to buy another 12 books?? You certainly deserve it.

You are a reading animal! I only wish I were as productive!

Congrats, Beth! Wow, you're fast!

congratulations Beth, you are a fast reader, like me. It will be interesting to see how many books you've read by the end of the year. I've been meaning to get Swallows and Amazons to read with my son. Thanks for the reminder.

I really ought to do this challenge lol. Just about every time I buy a book it is a week at the least before I get around to reading it!
