2016 Reading Challenge: #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks

When I started my blog last year, I simply wanted to read more and open my mind up to a variety of books. I feel that I definitely achieved that. Going into this year, I sat and pondered about which reading challenge I would participate in. Most of them required me to go out and buy a few books (not really a bad thing!) but, I really wanted to find a way to motivate myself to read what I already have at home. This lead me to the #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks challenge. This one suited me the best. I have a whole bookshelf of review copies and books I bought on impulse book hauls that are yearning to be read. Not to mention a complete set of Penguin Drop caps that need their spines broken in. So, here on in begins my challenge. I will be adding to this list once I do a walk through of my entire house because there are books EVERYWHERE. Wish me luck!
