Welcome to the group Andrew, hope you have a good year with the BFB's. Your target of 25 BFB's will make up for my decline this year, I managed 30 for this group and added another 17 as my challenge on the 75ers group was to read nothing under 500 pages, I completed the year with 47 books read.

Hi Andrew, your BFB reading is going well with 14 so far, I have not yet got to the BFB requirement yet but there is still time for me to get one done before year end. Next year will be a different story, still four months away but keep a look out, lol.
