2018 Challenge Update (Week 5)

In the last week I read two more books off my TBR list, so I am still on track as far as my reading challenges go. Thank goodness for audiobooks, though I did enjoy some glorious hours with my Kindle in stolen moments of quiet.

2018 Challenge Update (Week 4)

2018 Reading Challenges

New Year is one of my favorite times of the year. There is nothing quite like the feeling of wiping the slate clean and starting again renewed. In 2018 I hope to read more broadly and intentionally, discovering new authors while whittling down my >1200 book TBR list on Goodreads. To help guide my reading … Continue reading 2018 Reading Challenges
