  1. Ready for another year! Missed my 12th category last year. Boo. Just didn't put in enough time for The Historian! When are we getting a 2023 wrap-up post? Thanks for hosting, Michelle! Happy New Year!

    1. The Historian is an undertaking, but I love it. I've read it twice. I'll have the wrap up posted tonight or tomorrow. Glad to have you in for another year!

  2. I am also planning on this one! I got through all of 2023 minus two...I'm hoping to get a reading challenge post up this week...

    1. One better than me! Glad to have you joining us again. :)
