Stephanie (stephreadsnnc) | 183 comments I personally was already reading a stack of books which unfortunately didn't fit any of the requirements for this challenge. I am looking forward to next months challenge (if there is one) I will plan better since my stack of 6 has became just a book.

I'll keep an eye out for the required tasks for the next challenge. :D

Kristie | 5312 comments Hi Stephanie - We do the challenge every other month, so the next one will be in November. Maybe I’ll start posting a little earlier so people have time to plan.

Kristie | 5312 comments How are you doing, Olivia? Looks like you finished one earlier in the month. Did you finish any others or decide one was your challenge?

I didn't get to any this month! I'm in a bit of a slump and didn't do much reading.
