I don’t know how many you followed up on the reading challenge I issued earlier this year. I did not make a huge point of reading only books on the list, but I did every once and awhile pick a book purposely because it was on the challenge list.
To refresh your memory I have included the list below and as I review it I realize that I did better on the list than I thought I did. There were a couple that I thought for sure I would not get checked off,
read a book that makes you cry and the 500 page one. But I got did and am loved the book.
There was actually only one I didn’t really know if I got it checked off, read a book that has someone who shares your eye color. I have blue eyes and to be honest I probably did but who really knows.
I am looking for a new challenge for next year and will keep you posted when I find one that sounds like fun. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
