For the last bit of January, let's work from here...

Dear JLC6 Participants,

I do not know what has happened to the links in this challenge. They have randomly disappeared on me twice, which is why the second post has the missing links.

I am leaving Mr. Linky out in this post, and I will add your link if you'll leave it in the comments. I so apologize for the confusion.

    Thanks for hosting this Challenge again--one of these years I may actually enjoy the book I read it for it, my friend!

  4. It's a shame I could only read one Jlit book in January. But here it is:


    Thanks for hosting this Bellezza. I part of me thinks this challenge should go on for the full length of the year, or go on forever!
