Summers almost here! And for this season I've decided to take the Goodreads Ultimate Summer Reading Challenge and I've decided to invite you guys to join me in the challenge.
I will post the list here and you guys can tackle the challenge in teams or solo. There will be serious teams and fun teams so you can read at your speed. You don't necessarily read the book in the designated months, you can read in whatever order you wish to.
So if you will like to join the Goodreads Ultimate Summer Reading Challenge just post on this thread whether you are Solo, Fun Team, or Serious Team and I'll set you up.
The challenge will last from June 1st to August 31st.
