Book Challenge by Erin 17.0


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 will run from July 1, 2022 to October 31, 2022. No books started before 12 a.m. on July 1 or finished after 11:59 p.m. on October 31 will count. (We live in different time zones--follow according to your own time zone.)
Each book must be at least 200 pages long. Audio books are fine too.
Read one book for each category.
For full details see Erin's page on Facebook (link above). You will need to join the private group to view.
