Here is the sizzlin' summer June challenge! And, you won't have to venture out of your OWN library! For this month, the challenge is simple! Read books that you own personally and have not read yet! There are two stages: Stage One: Read 1-3 books and Stage Two: 4-6 books. For signing up, just add what stage you are interested in doing, and start! Enjoy!

I'm glad we had this challenge. It made me look harder at the books on my shelf and have brought them back to my attention to read soon.
