2016 Reading Challenges

I’m trying something I’ve never done before – a reading challenge! Or two… or more if I feel up to it.
My rules say, a book can cross one off the list for multiple lists.
Here goes!


The goal: Read a book starting with each letter of the alphabet.
The challenge: Letters like X…. But I’ll give it a try!
