Vacation Challenge
Our third quarterly challenge is the vacation challenge! Don’t you just wish you could go to exotic or fantastical places every now and then? Well, here’s the cheaper version.

*Books must be 100 pages to count (using the most rated edition on GR)
**Books read that are under 100 pages will count toward page counts
**Books that are DNFed can count toward pages. A review and/or status updates is still required.
