I'll give it a try! This will be my first official "Reading Challenge"

Tony D said...

So, do you have to read twelve separate books? Or can you kill two (ten) birds with one stone?

The Mistress of the Dark said...

It should be 12 separate books Tony. :)

Tony D said...

No problem...I just started Les Miserables and it could have knocked off a third of these. :)

The Mistress of the Dark said...

Are you reading the unabridged version? I've wanted to read that for ages. I re-read one of the abridged versions a few years ago, and I liked it better this time more than I did in high school.

Tony D said...

yes, the unabridged. Though I think the abridged would qualify as "chunky" too. ;)

Bev Hankins said...

Can books read for other challenges count for this one (not necessarily all...but some)? If so, I'm definitely in. If not, then I'm in, but we'll have to see if I make it (I may be over-committing myself in a reading challenge frenzy :-) )

The Mistress of the Dark said...

Bev: certainly :)

The Itzel Library said...

Yay! Is fantastic! Count me!! My blog is in spanish too! ;)

Take care,
