2018 Reading Challenge Rundown

After hitting a major reading slump in 2017, I’m hoping that completing some reading challenges will help be get my reading mojo back on track. When reading for challenges to do this year, I found so many good ones and I wanted to do them all. But alas it’s not possible, unless I read all day every day. Now this sounds like a good plan.
