  1. I am stealing this idea for 2013 – maybe it will get me to blog again…

    (honestly, I am not stalking you today – it’s just I finally found some time to catch up on my favorite book review blogs :)

    • LOL, no worries, whatever gets you motivated. :D I know what you mean. This year has been really light on the blogging for me, and I’d like to get back to it more solidly in 2013.
