  1. eep! Frank McCourt actually died in 2009, so his memoir is no longer of someone still alive sadly. It was a great book though--never appreciated the joy of a warm potato with salt and butter quite so much as I did after I read that book.

  2. Awww...well, I guess I was close. I'm still really excited because at least in my mind, I actually finished this challenge -- then I found out that it ended April 1st not April 30th -- how embarrassing.
