These were such fun challenges! I totally agree you should come to PA sometime-it's pretty awesome! Ireland and Italy made my list as well and I've been to TX two times now! The I Spy was really fun but also kinda hard with mainly Christian books!

Melanie said...

It was kind of hard - especially since you could only choose books that you own. It was still really fun, though! :)

Wow, you did great! And a lot of the places you put for the Book Road Trip challenge are places I would have chosen, too! :D

Hope you're right on track with your reading goals! :)

Melanie said...

Thanks, Crystal! I'm two books away from my goal! I hope you are on track with your goals too! :D

Tressa @ Wishful Endings said...

We used some of the same books. :) Love your choices! I hope you get a lot of reading done today! I'm about half-way through my goals, but I might not quite make it by one book. We'll see.
