30 Day (Minute) Book Challenge
A friend of mine tagged me in this 30 Day Book Challenge on Facebook and I thought it would be fun to fill out. I was supposed to wait and answer one of these a day... but I decided instead I would try to answer them all under 30 minutes because I have ADHD and that's just how I roll.
I was also supposed to put this on Facebook in my Notes and tag 30 friends, but I switched to the new Timeline and I can't figure out where Notes is anymore. #FacePalm
