With 2011 quickly coming to a close, there are only a few weeks left to figure out what books to include in this year’s Top 10 Week posts.
I’ve really, really tried to start early on creating my lists for this week-long event, but I have to say that I haven’t been able to commit to ten books for any of them. I’m terrible at narrowing things down to just ten, and this has really not been easy. Not at all.
So, are you having the same problem as I am with sticking to just ten? Or was this easy-peasy for you? If so, I’m super jealous!
Did you add a few “honorable mentions” to the list when things got too difficult? Did you resort to “eenie, meenie” when you just couldn’t decide?
All of us involved in the event would love to know how things are going with your lists! And I’m sure other participants are just as curious to see if you have had any speed-bumps or roadblocks along the way. Feel free to leave a comment and let us know how things are going!
And we thought that now would be a great time to check in and to post some additional information about our week-long event. So….
First off, we’re really excited to see how many of you will be joining in with posts for the last week of the year. And if you haven’t signed up, not to worry… there’s still plenty of time!
