    My 2018 Goodreads Challenge

    I set my goal to 1 and I count the Littles’ reading towards my goal. I once made them their own goodreads page but honestly I forgot to update it so much. I do plan on teaching Little 1 about goodreads so that he can keep track of his reading this coming school year.

    Personally, I’ve personally read 50 books this year.
