Summer Book Trek

Where was this last month when I read a bazillion LDS titles!? I decided to accept a challenge this summer and thought I would let you in on it too in case you want to win some prizes! Now that I think about it I probably shouldn't let you in on this so there's more prizes for me! hahaha Okay, okay...I'll let you in on it!

The basic info

Set your goals and track your progress. No goal is too small; no ambition too great. Feeling overwhelmed? Make a short list. Finish early? Add more books (or not). Change your mind on a title? Drop it. No pressure, no minimums. Make changes to your list as desired.
