Dread & Read Challenge 2018 - Progress & Reviews
Here's where you can follow your progress toward those dreaded reading goals. (Learn more about this challenge and sign up here, before December 1, to join in.)
If you're determined to move some of those perpetually looming books off your reading lists this year, you've come to the right place!
Here's how it works: Let me know your progress in the comments on this post as the year goes on, including a review link or some comments about the book. When you knock those books off your TBR list, you'll get a sweetener in the mail as you reward--in case having them in your literary rear view mirror isn't enough!
Still plenty of time to sign up!
