2018 Reading Challenges

Last year I attempted the Book Riot Read Harder Challenge and failed miserably.  It was too many prompts for me to keep track of and by half way through the year I just ended up reading what I wanted instead.  So, this year I thought that I would go a different way and try several smaller challenges instead.

Let’s see how I fare this year.
