100 Books in a Year Challenge 2014


Last year, I read over 200 books, which was pretty awesome. To keep up the momentum, I’ll participate in the 100 Books in a Year challenge hosted by Book Chick City.

This challenge is open for books of all genres. I will keep track of my progress here, through monthly updates, and in the sidebar.

If you’d like to participate as well, you can sign up here.
