I always love a good reading challenge and putting together this tbr made me really excited to read, more excited then I have been lately. I was pouring through my library catalog looking for books to fulfill some of the challenges.
This challenge really brings me back to the summer challenges that my library would host every year and I loved participating in them as a child.
I don’t think I’m going to finish my entire tbr but I’m looking forward to trying. Hopefully more interest in reading means more interest in blogging so fingers crossed!
