2017 Reading Challenges

Tue, 01/03/2017 - 2:23pm -- hdraft

The dawn of a new year is always a time where many people think about changes they would like to make or goals they would like to achieve. For me, one such goal at the beginning of each year has always been in the form of a book challenge.

There are many different options to choose from if you are interested in pursuing a book challenge in 2017. Perhaps you have a certain number of books in mind that you would like to complete this year, or may you would simply like to read more widely. The following are just a handful of the many challenges in which you can participate.
