Writing/Reading Challenges

Here is where I post the writing and reading challenges in which I am involved. For the year 2014, I’ve only set up reading challenges thus far. Next to writing, reading is the most important habit for an author to have.

My Goodreads Reading Challenge goal is to read 40 books this year and I plan to do some of that through overlap with reading challenges. So, without further ado, here are my chosen reading challenges for 2014:
