Book Challenge by Erin 10.0

And....It's finally open. The Winter Edition of Erin's book challenge. This year's challenge will celebrate and commemorate ten rounds of exciting reading with Erin's challenge and will use categories previously used in one of those rounds.

A Few General Rules
~First and foremost, have fun. Don't stress. No one is being judged, graded, or penalized. Even if you finish only one book the entire challenge, if you enjoy it and it's an accomplishment for you, then that's awesome.
~The challenge runs from JANUARY 1, 2019 to APRIL 30, 2019. No books started before 12 a.m. on Jan. 1 or finished after 11:59 pm on April 30 will count. (We live in different time zones--follow according to your own time zone.)
~Each book (except where noted) must be 200 pages long. Audio books are fine too.

For the complete rules please check out the Book Challenge by Erin 10.0 Facebook page.
