Update on My Reading Challenge

Update on My Reading Challenge

Reading Challenge

Fifteen weeks in, I’m just about on target on my Reading Challenge for 2015. How are you doing? I’m trying for one in each category before I do much doubling up. So far I’ve read a book for 20 out of the 52 categories.

Recommendations are welcome!

Here is where I am in the challenge and what I have left to do. The ones in red I’ve read:
