The Book Challenge by Erin 8.0 will run from JANUARY 1, 2018 to APRIL 30, 2018. No books that are started before 12 a.m. on January 1 or finished after 11:59 p.m. on April 30 will count. (We live in different time zones – follow this according to your own time zone.) Full details at the Facebook link.
Each book must be at least 200 pages long. Audio books are fine too.
A book can only be used for one category, and each category can only be completed once.
If you want to switch the category of a book, or change the book you originally chose, no worries.
Here is my tentative book list.
