I love the idea of your challenge but will probably not be joining (being preggo I change my mind every five minutes - but as of now....) only because I have my hands full with the Wheel of Time Series. I believe there are 17 books (all over 600 pages long)and I am in #3 and they are good. Have you read them?
Only the first page of the first book--that first page had better be good if someone expects me to hang in there for over 10,000 more! You can just stalk The Serendipity Challenge for awhile--we'll suck you in eventually. I know how you feel about taking on something new. And it's cool--I love you whether you join my little group or not.
