  1. I was looking to see if there was a place to link wrap-up posts for the challenge and saw that somehow I had completely missed the part about linking up reviews, so I just did some catching up. 🙂 All together I read 25 non-fiction books, more than the 10-15 I had originally planned. Thanks for hosting, I enjoyed it!

  2. And I am wrapping up the challenge for the year. Yes, I know there are 12 days left from now until the end of the year, but I know I will not have all the reviews for all I read that could qualify for the challenge. In the end, I finished with 24 nonfiction books read and reviewed for the challenge. Looking forward to see what others share and to next year.

    Happy holidays, and keep on reading.

  3. Added a few more now. While I have been reading, keeping up with posting the reviews online has not been as easy. I do estimate I will move up to the next level. Best, and keep on blogging.

  4. Catching up on updating, added reviews for books two through eight in my tier. I do anticipate upgrading to the next tier after Explorer soon. This list has gotten bigger, folks here have read quite a bit. Looking forward to checking them out too.

    Best, and keep on blogging.

  5. I am catching up. I posted reviews for the 2nd through the 6th books I have read so far.

  6. OK, just left my first review in. I have two more read but not reviewed yet. Hope to have them soon. Seeing lots of interesting stuff others have posted. I will have to go look them over.

    Best, and keep on blogging.

  7. Finished Gypsy Wedding Dreams by Thelma Madine – lovely book, perfect for those lazy days when you just want to relax, have a little laugh and not use your brain too much.

  8. I just finished "In the Name of God" which was a challenging but riveting book were it not for the intrusions by the author into the story. I'm currently reading "Things My Mother Gave Me". Looking forward to checking out some of the books reviewed here.
