Want to Take the 2017 Reading Challenge With Me?

Long before I was a writer, I was a bookworm–and I still  am. I’ve stood in line for midnight book releases, dressed up as favorite characters, and pinned library reading program flyers to my refrigerator.  I have a time turner necklace in my jewelry box and laughed my head off with the irony of keeping my Harry Potter books in a cupboard under the stairs. So when I saw a mention of Pop Sugar’s Reading Challenge over on Goodreads last month, I could barely wait for 2017 to get here so I could dive in! Who’s in?

There are 40 tasks, plus an addition 12 for readers who want a weekly challenge for the year. How many can you complete?
