Reading Challenge 2017
I decided to make my own reading challenge this year as every one that I found had items I really didn’t want to do. So I am going to take the best ones from the lists I have looked at. The goal isn’t to read everything on the list, this is more of a suggestion list to expand my reading. Ideas taken from Popsugar and a few other random blogs.
