Final Thoughts

I failed the challenge, this particular one was more of a oh, I'll read that book later. And of course I never did. Having a list of books to read in a challenge, instead of pick as you go is a downfall for me. And one of the main reasons I didn't complete the challenge, sometimes you're jsut not in the mood to read book X. Ah well, I knocked some books of the list, progress right?
