  5. I am participating this year.
    For week one I read Cat and Mouse in a Haunted House Book 3 of the Geronimo Stilton series.
    Is this the right place to record the books I read for each week?

    2. Deleted your link because it was for 52 books url address. Copy and paste url from your website in the link widget. Thanks.

  8. Informative stuff. Actually, I'm also a student and find out the solved or answers to my syllabus questions & landed here. Some novels of tend to ripen in the reader. It seems as if they are sprouting in memory. For example, “Ankare” by Claes Estergren. Over time, this romance continues to grow in me. Its a fact you have also shared an enjoyable and informative piece of content here. Anyways, thanks for sharing the nice piece of stuff with us.


Thank you for your kind comments.
