Finished! I Finished Something! So I start it again

I loved Book Date's Full House Challenge, with the bingo card full of books to read. This year she hit many of my sweet spots, so I've completed my card! Black Out!


So the pressure is off, but I had fun. So I think I'll start over, using different colors to put books where they fit and see which categories I read the most in.

I seem to have given up writing actual reviews, instead contenting myself with a few sentences in my Monday round-ups, so I'm not much use to people looking for ideas. Sorry!

(By the way, I'm well on my way through this second, because of a small glitch I made. In my list of the squares below the box, I originally copied Published in 2015 twice, leaving out Published in 2016. So I thought I was done a month or so before I was actually done -- see the Triple Dare which meant not reading anything I didn't have on my shelves on January 1st. By the time I caught my error, I had started filling this out. But I figure I'm just here to have fun, so no one really cares. I don't even know why you are reading this.)
