  1. Yes, but only because I know I won’t be able to fit 4 books into one post (too long). So I’m reading 2 books at a time and posting then. Basically my first two books each week will be posted early, but by the time I post the last two at the end of the week, everyone else will be posting on four and we’ll be going at the same pace. Does that make sense? 🙂
