Apologies and a question

Hi, everyone! I hope that you have been enjoying the challenge. It certainly looks like everyone has been reading some amazing books; I am filled with admiration.

I wanted to write and apologize for my unwilling absence from the challenge; I can only say by way of excuse that I have been caught up in the horrors of dissertation-finishing and job-getting (in addition to my normal work of teaching) since September and have been desperately missing my blog life. Hopefully the mad frenzy of activity will be over soon.

So here is what I need to ask: I still have a lot of unread authors to read, and I am overwhelmed by sadness at being kept (boo to work!) from participating in this challenge as I would have like to, so I was thinking of making this a regular (or at least periodic) challenge. Would anyone be interested in joining me if I held another round of unread-author-reading from, say, July to December of this year? Let me know what you think.

I'd be interested - particularly if it's a July-December time frame. I've got a lot of challenges currently in progress, but should be able to finish up a few of those and be ready for more in the second half of the year.

I had fun with this one and since I've always got unread authors on my TBR list, it's easy and fun to participate.

Yeah, I could certainly come up with another 1/2 doz. unread authors from my shelves in that time! If its a go, I'd be up for it.
