MC-ThriftBooks-Reading-Challenge-2018-1

I’m having fun with the ThriftBooks Reading Challenge. It’s designed to encourage reading outside your comfort zone; something we all need to do. Let me know in the comments if you have any book recommendations to make it through this challenge. It’s a tough one. The printable tracker is on the ThriftBooks blog.
