Book Charmers Reading Challenge 2016


The ladies of Book Charmers have created our own 2016 Reading Challenge. If anyone out there is interested in joining along, just copy our graphic to your blog or whatever tracking device you want to use and leave a comment here letting us know you’re participating so we can track your progress in addition to our own. Please be sure to link back to our blog, too. We’re also sharing this challenge with our Goodreads group, A Million More Pages.
