The Reading Challenge 2015

The Reading Challenge

Usually I’m not a very competitive person, I hate anything that is even remotely connected to competition, I just lack the competitive gene, but I do love me some challenges, especially reading ones. I feel like reading challenges motivate me to read more than I would otherwise. When I saw this challenge I was immediately drawn to it, and so I have to try it. We’ll see how it goes.
