Challenge Check-In: August 7th, 2019

How’s your reading challenge going?  For the past 3 months I’ve been traveling non-stop around Europe (the British Isles, Switzerland, Germany, and Italy), so my checked-off categories continue to look pretty dismal compared to the full 75 which I’m still hoping to complete. Somehow Colleen’s list of checked-off categories is still in good form, despite her two very busy part-time jobs this summer leaving her hardly any free hours to read—which I suppose are the benefits of hitting those categories hard in the first few months of the year. Alas, we sometimes have to admit that living life to the fullest and reading dozens of fabulous books are goals which do not always align!

We’re hoping our category fillers will help you find some suitable candidates for your own reading challenge—and to that end, we’ve included a few quick reviews of our favorite reads. Hopefully you’ll find some winners of your own as you rack up categories over the next few months! Best wishes, and happy reading!
