  1. Holy cow you read a lot! I feel so lame! lol. I am still working my way through some classics yet, but I wanted to read Divergent!

    • Don’t feel lame!

      I have a friend who read 92 books this year which was bad for her, because she usually reads over 100 books a year haha. . . now that is crazy.

      You really do read a lot of classics! I think that is great! I need to read more cassics! I haven’t read enough of them. I pay attention to your Goodreads and am very impressed with the books you read! Keep it up, friend!
