I am joining the Summer Read 2017 Challenge. This was originated in a terrific blog 746books please use the link above to find out all about the challenge.
This is actually the second year that I have taken the challenge but last year I tried for the full 20 books but found that it was really too much, although I did just about manage it! So this year I have decided to take on the 10 books of Summer and have a reserve list should I find that I can manage a few more books.
