2018 Book Reading Challenge

A friend shared this challenge in a group I’m in, and one of the responses was that perhaps we could share books we enjoy which fall under each challenge week. I have so much going on in my life right now, I doubt I could meet the challenge — even with as much and as fast as I read. But I loved the idea of sharing the titles/authors of books I love with others who are looking to complete this challenge. And If I see anything that catches my fancy (new or old), I’ll do the weeks that I can.

Are you up to the challenge?

There is a 26-book and 52-book challenge. And on this post you can find my suggestions.
