Hi 3M,

I am planning a discussion of Book Challenges on my Blog Talk Radio program next Saturday and was hoping that you would consider being on a panel of two or three people that I interview. Would you be interested?

If so, please drop me a note at kevinstilley [at] sbcglobal dot net and we will get it set up.

Thanks,

Kevin Stilley

Wow...what an impressive list! I really need to do this as well, to give myself some kind of plan to follow. (Can't believe I didn't think of it on my own, as I'm generally a pretty obsessive list-maker.)

Goodness sakes! Do you feel a bit overwhelmed?

3M said...

I usually read 8 or so books in a month so I think it's doable. The problem comes when an interesting challenge comes along!

3M said...

Sent you an email, Kevin!

I would never be able to follow a list like that... I always find other books I want to read!

I have read and enjoyed several of your planned books, but I also share several that I own by have not read yet!
