2016 Reading Challenges

2015 was the year I completely stopped reading…and if you know me, you know how unlike me that really is! I used to bring books to the dinner table, to the football games, even to the deer stand! 2016 is all about getting back to me, a better me…and part of that is getting back to the books! To help accomplish this, I am participating in several book challenges.
