Reading Challenge Check In
With only two months left in 2020, it’s time to start looking forward to a new year. I know I’m not the only one who’s ready for a fresh start!
On Thursday November 12th I’ll be announcing the categories for my fourth annual While I Was Reading Challenge. Each year, I give twelve prompts and all you have to do is read!
