As you all know, I've been a participating in the M/M Romance Reading Challenge started by Christina from I Heart Paperbacks. I joined this great Challenge as part of a wonderful team of enthusiastic ladies from The Manhole at The Phade. The official challenge started on April 15 and will end by August 31, 2009.
This has been a wonderful experience for me personally. Our Manhole team had the most wonderful time coming up with great recommendations and unique category names, but most important of all they were there with some much needed encouragement when some of us were down and out -- that's one great group of ladies! A shout out and many thanks to all of them for sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm. Thank you ladies, you are the best!
The biggest of thanks to Christina from I Heart Paperbacks for starting the Challenge. Thank you Christina! This has been a fun and wonderful experience and my M/M TBR pile is now enormous. Of course, I've "discovered" so many new authors whose backlists I "must read" that I know this Challenge will stay with me for a lot longer than August 31st.
Since I've been posting most of my M/M Mini Reviews here, I thought I would let you see my completed list. Thank you all for sharing, for your encouragement and for stopping by.
