2017 Reading — Challenges

I’ve done a post like this the past couple of years and I liked the way those turned out so I plan to continue in that pattern this year and post today about what I read in 2017 and what challenges I was able to complete.
So, here goes!  😉
Read my review, read a book blurb, find the rest of the books in a series, or learn more about an author by clicking on the cover of the book that interests you.

Looking back on 2017…..

I set 7 reading goals for myself at the beginning of 2017 and I’m happy to say that I was able to complete all of them!  🙂

I also tried to keep track of all the places I visited in my reading travels.  I didn’t get it written down for every book I read, but I did for most of them.

I visited at least 34 states and 18 countries in 2017! 😀

And now I’m looking forward to seeing where 2018 will take me!
