Yes - I guess when this challenge was written they were trying to get people to read their older books listed on the to read shelf.


message 13: by Hannah (last edited Mar 29, 2018 07:26AM) (new)

Hannah (bookwormhannah) | 295 comments So, Joanne, does that mean that for #1 you would accept books that I've had on my shelf for years, even if I don't finish one of those first twenty added?

I don't own all 20 of the oldest books on my list, but I read #24 in March....would you count it if it's within the oldest 20 owned books??

Marlena by Julie Buntin
COMPLETED 04/24/2018
For PopSugar, I needed to find a book I hadn't read in a celebrity book club. Since I really don't follow celebrities, this was tough and then when I read this depressing novel on alcohol and drug abuse among adolescents, well, it was hard to finish. So sad to see young lives ruined.
