I am very excited to announce that I am participating in the Semi-Charmed Summer 2015 Book Challenge! The challenge runs from May 1, 2015 to August 31, 2015. Unfortunately I got started late…but better late than never! I found my passion for reading again last summer when I went to work on a fire in Washington. Unfortunately, over the winter, I have put reading aside again and I have recently picked it up again! I hope that by participating in this book challenge I will stay motivated to continue reading!
