2015 Literary Pickers Reading Challenge: Quarterly Update #1

This is my first quarterly update for the Literary Pickers Reading Challenge 2015 hosted by Sophia at Delighted Reader. This is one of my "Just for Fun" Challenges for 2015, and I'm having quite a bit of fun just glancing through this list once in a while. It's funny to make note of the random objects and things that I might not have noticed before in the books I'm reading. And I think I'm doing pretty well (although I haven't compared it to anyone else's list, since I'm not actually competing in the challenge). I've copied the items I found up until this point, and this will be where I update that list until my next quarterly update.

  1. That is a really fun challenge! I may try it next year if they do it again.

    1. It is really fun! The actual challenge is just for romances (which is why I'm just doing it for fun), soif they make that stipulation again next year, maybe I'll make my own! I've never hosted a challenge before; might be fun.

    2. Aha, yes, I would not be able to do it "for real" if it was strictly for romances. So if you hosted one that was for all books, I would love to participate!
