Reading Tag

Sorry for the lack of updates. I have been very busy working on KOF!

Anyway, here's a tag that Bluejane tagged me with quite a while ago.

The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they have printed.

I know I'm not an adult, but let's see how I do!

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you love.

8 book are bolded, 17 are italicized. In spite of this tag, I assure you, I am not illiterate! I love to read... just not all of the books on here! Anyway, I guess it is a good thing I am not an adult yet! ;o)

I would like to thank you all for awarding me. I am very sorry I haven't gotten around to doing a post with them, but as I've said, it's been very hectic. If I don't get around to it, I apologize profusely, but I assure you I appreciate them very much. =)

In His Love,
~Kylie

Comments make the world go 'round... or was that chocolate?

Thank you for stopping by! I read every single comment and love them all. Seriously, it makes my day. I do my best to comment back!

My only rule is basic respect and honor. Disagreement is accepted, but hate and trolling is not. Otherwise, say what you need to say, and have fun. And don't forget to grab a free complimentary mint on your way out.
