  1. What a great project, and what a great list of books. I am very impressed with your goal, and I love your word-limited reviews. Cut it down to the essentials.

    I have a reading blog (Rebecca Reads). But I like words and writing a lot, so I’m going to keep writing long-winded reviews. I write much more than 101 words for each review I write! But I can tell I’ll enjoy following along with you! Enjoy your reading.

    This comment is still not 101 words. It’s hard to do.

  2. Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to
    help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results.
    If you know of any please share. Thanks!
