This challenge is a little different and a throw-back to the origins of the Reading Challenge group.

Mission: Read 50 books this year.

Plan: Keep track of your books any way you wish (in the Personal Goal folder, for example), then update here EACH MONTH with your total for the month and the year so far.

p.s. I have no plans to keep an overall group tally. But feel free to congratulate and encourage each other as you see members reporting their progress.

Nope, as long as it is on GR as a book/has been published separately as a book, it counts
