Lo (lo_oneill) | 5 comments Hi, I am Lo and I joined TNBBC after reading the article on good reads about the summer book challenge. I loved reading as a teenager but lost some of that whilst completing my degrees as I didn't have time to read anything other than books for my study! Now that I have finished my degrees I am rediscovering my love for reading and trying to challenge myself to read as much as possible.

I have created this list so that I can keep track of what parts of the challenge I have completed and am going to add the names of the books that I have started against the challenge. I am going to take the beginners level challenge :)
