What a lovely reading challenge! (If I wasn't so reading challenge challenged, I'd sign up.)

I want to do this, but I hesitate to make the commitment - it's such a busy time of year and my reading always slows down. I may see how things progress over the next few weeks and sign up late.

Your plans look ambitious, but I have total confidence you'll meet your goals.

This sounds great! I'd sign up, but my reading has gone down the pan lately... as has my reviewing. I really should get back into it. Hmmm... Maybe I should join in! :D

This sounds like it will be fun! If I knew for sure I'd be up for blogging in the coming weeks, I could be tempted to sign up myself. Alas, it's best if I don't.

What has become of your "monday" postings?

This is a great idea. It looks to be really fun.

Though my reading schedule is busy, I will try to join you with at least one entry.
