Tuesday, January 5
Books Read: Merrick by Claire Cray
Pages Read: I don't know since it was on kindle but it has 153pgs. I think 76 since I read half on monday.
Books Completed: 1
Challenges: Would you rather
Would you rather:
Lend books to someone who dog-ears pages or to someone who reads with cheesy Cheetos fingers? Dog ear pages. I don't want orange stains on my pages, that's crazy

Would you rather:
Be able to meet one character of your choice or meet one author of your choice? Meet one character of my choice

Would you rather:
Never be allowed in a book store again or never be allowed in a library again? Never be allowed in a book store again. That would save me money and the library is always free.

Would you rather:
Have to choose one of your favorite characters to die in their book or have to pick one of your favorite couples to break up in their book? This is soooooo hard, IDK, I think the second one. 

Would you rather:
Be required to read Twilight once a year for the rest of your life or The Scarlet Letter once a year for the rest of your life? Haven't read either, would never read them. I don't even know what The Scarlett Letter is about. I never want to pick up Twilight. UMMM?, I guess The Scarlett Letter.
