  1. Good luck!!! I haven’t thought about what books I’m going to read for this yet but I probably won’t reach the full 36 anyway.


    1. Thank you! I tend to fill it in with what I’m already reading until towards the end when I start hunting out specific books…


      1. That’s the way I like to do it too but I’ve really been slacking in my reading lately. I find challenges often help narrow down what I want to read
