15 Books of Summer 2018

20 15 Books of Summer, hosted by Cathy @ 746 Books

It’s become a summer tradition: Cathy invites us to set the goal and we read!

The challenge is to make a list (full or partial, or change it up when you need to) and read 20 (or 15, or 10) books between June 1st and September 3rd. I’m feeling ambitious this year and I’ll be shooting for 15 instead of my usual 10.

COUNT: 12/15
