At the fag end of 2011, I had signed up for the Pick-Your-A-Thon challenge hosted at The Book Monsters. I participated in a few of their mini-challenges. I also read, and reviewed Andrew Taylor's The American Boy; K.K. Khullar's The Yellow Rose and Other Stories, and Sean Slater's The Survivor. With this extra burst I was able to successfully complete two challenges: Mystery and Suspense, and Borrowed Book.
It was fun and I hope to participate in such events again.
