Book Challenge by Erin 5.0 July, 2016

Book Challenge by Erin 5.0, has kicked off and I’m pretty keen to get stuck into it after smashing the last challenge. I definitely recommend checking it out and joining if you’re an avid reader or you want to stretch your reading goals. It’s great to meet other like minded readers as well as find books you may not have considered reading before. It’s a Facebook group dedicated to reading at least ten books in four months, and the next challenge looks to be brilliant. I got to choose one of the categories – a book published over 100 years ago – and some of the other categories look particularly challenging too!
