Summer Book Challenge 2014

It has been decided!  I have combine my love of reading with my love of a good challenge!  This summer I’m going to take on a reading challenge created by Semi Charmed Kind of Life.  The dates for the challenge run from May 1st till August 31st, so I’m starting a bit late but I have no doubt that I will be able to catch up.  You can find more details for the challenge at her blog 🙂
