  1. I picked "The Line" for my challenge as well! Yay! :)

  2. I'm super-excited to finally read The Line! It's been languishing on my TBR list for months.

  3. Hi! Welcome to the challenge. :) You've got some great looking books there in your book-pool. I've got 'Gone' on mine as well, I've seen people rave about it and be indifferent about it, so I'm looking really looking forward seeing what it's like.

  4. Thanks, Darren! That's what I've heard about Gone too. Here's hoping we both enjoy it!
