  1. I’ve read 2 books for 15 points each: Tales from Shakespeare, and I am Morgan Le Fay, a Camelot book. That brings my total to 165.

  2. I got 20 more points for reading To the Lighthouse from the Modern Library 100 list, so my total is now 140.

  3. 10 points for this week with The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman. (read a book that begins with an A and a Z~ already read the ‘A’ book.)

  4. I finished Confederates In the Attic: Dispatches From the Unfinished Civil War by Tony Horwitz for 15 points.

    I read and reviewed How Beautiful the Ordinary for 20 points:

    Now at 145, and working on the Georgette Heyer book. Have I told you lately how much I love this challenge? I never would have read the Horwitz book, which I loved, or anything by Heyer without the little push from the challenge…thank you!!

  5. Huh? I’m still at 50 points? I thought it was a bit more..oh well:) Did you get my email asking you to add 2 more books?
    Let me know:)

  6. I think I have everyone updated now! Sorry for the delay.

    Lucy, let me know if your total is wrong. I might have missed updating you one week 🙂

    I’m off to work soon, but will check when I get home!

  7. I have read: a Pulitzer winner for 20 pts, Interpreter of Maladies’ a biography for 15 pts, Nellie McClung; and a Heyer book for 10 pts, Why Shoot a Butler?

    that should put my total at 210 points.
