Current Stats as of end of Feb. & Organized List of Reviews

Seocond month into the challenge and we are still going strong  Reviews did peter down a bit in February with a total of 25 reviews from the same group of people who have been posting all along since January.. But one more participants has started adding his reviews to the website.  Check out Tom's reviews this month.  Our new stats tell us that out of 42 participants, 15 have started the challenge posting a combined 79 reviews all together.  Way to go guys!  Those who haven't started yet, don't get discouraged, you still have the whole year ahead of you, but remember the books don't count unless you link them here on the blog.  If you forget one month, just link them in the next month.

Several people have moved up in the rankings, but no new people have joined the Top (Twelve & Over) Club.  Everybody is pretty much reading their own thing with no book coming out as most popular which is really interesting to see such diverse selections being represented here.  My "want to read" list is certainly getting longer

Don't forget to visit each other's reviews and drop a brief comment.

For those who have finished please continue to add your books each month as it will help others find great new titles to read, send more traffic your way and enter you for any contest(s) I manage to get together.

At the end of the stats is a list of all the books and links to reviews so far.
