Collective Reading Challenges

Hey guys, it’s Amy! As you may know, my main challenge for 2017 is Around the World in 52 Books. 2016 was simply too hectic, with so many different reading challenges. For this year, I simply want to tone it down a bit (yes, I wrote this before I signed up for a gazillion challenges). Therefore, ATWIFTB (oh boy) is the main challenge one. As in, challenges for specific types of books, genres, etc. But I really like seeing my progress with things like how many library books I’ve read, etc., so I still want to do those again! (And also, I saw somebody create a bingo challenge. And I broke. I just have to do it.) Confused? So am I. Hopefully it will clear up for you as I go!
