Haha, well, I had a couple of audios in there. Also, I've been using a more conservative page counting method.

I'm really amazed by Book Bloggers :)
I mean how do you lovelies, organize your time so well?
Read a book then blog about it? :)

BTW, I wanna read that book so bad. :(
Hm. I wish I started early in having these fond of books. I just started last April, and this time, school started. :(

Awww, thanks!

As for time organization, that's pretty much what I do. This year, with the size of my book challenge, I've had to cut down on my television-watching for reading. It helps not to be an overly social person. :-p

What's important is that you found them!
