Ideal shelf-cleaning event.

January 1  ~  December 31

 

When there’s one good community, might as well join them all!  “Off The Shelf” is a comfortable circle seeking pre-2012 acquisitions.  For example, Canadian Lyn Hamilton’s third novel is “Moche Warrior” but I just got it.  Instead I list “Celtic Warrior”, found earlier.  Since long-sitting titles describe most of my library building;  what a walk in the park!

Applying what I’ve read since January:  #3Making A Dent” of 30 books is already under my belt!  I’ll review all of those and rise to #4On A Roll”.  Having enjoyed a used sale on my anniversary August 4, I’m determined to read 50!  Paired with this, I commit to extra challenge #5,  authors of 4 countries;  3 are complete.  When I work on my Ireland challenge, my 4th culture will be in place.

One of the hostesses, Bonnie, is very nice and only asks you please not spell her name with a Y.  ;)  The same goes for RIEDEL (i + e) Fascination!  Menus atop this blog lead to Amazon.ca where you can raise my rank.  I’ll keep adding reviews.
