  1. Ooh! I need to do mine! Once I turn in my last paper, I'm going to get back to updating my blog.

    Btw, DAAAAAAANNG!!! You listened to 41 books?! Audiobooks are definitely your precious. ;) Awesome job!

    1. I love listening to audiobooks... The past two years I've become really addicted to them, almost preferring to listen to audiobooks than reading books!! I can do other things will listening to audiboooks like doing my other hobby of knitting for instance.

      Looking forward to reading your posts once you have some down time from school. Happy reading! And happy holidays!!
