During Bloggiesta I participated in a mini-challenge hosted by The Book Wheel and Love at First Book.
The challenge is to create a list of 50 Bookish Things you want to do before you kick the bucket.
This took me awhile to get my list together. After reading the other list from various bloggers, they all seem to be the same things in mind. I have a few things that are, I guess, not what most of the book bloggers want. Here is it!
