These are all on my side bar, I'm just putting this list down for the sake of linking it to the contest page. For my re-reads I'm reading all 7 potter books but because they are re-reads I'm clumping them together as "one" book. I also tried to go outside my shell a bit when it comes to reading, although I didn't veer to far away from it. We'll see some books I can't wait to try. (Also, see my progress on the side bar, I've already have 6 done! GO ME!)

  1. Wow, lumping the Potter books together means even more books, good for you!

    I'm trying to stretch my reading lately, too, but finding it a wee bit hard.

    I'm envious of your progress bars, I think I may have to add some to my blog. :)
