JUNE 2020 READING CHALLENGE CLEAN UP
DATE: 06/01/20 - 06/30/20
SCC-Reading-Challenge-Clean-Up

It's time to gather books for June's reading challenge clean up! Take a look at your challenges and decide what needs to be cleaned up and marked off your list next. This is kind of like a read-a-thon...with a twist. The goal is to help us complete a difficult challenge - or one that has been lingering for a while :)

To Start: You will need to pick a specific "target" to work on...a challenge that is proving difficult to finish, a challenge that needs just a few books to complete....any reading challenge you've been working on for some time, but haven't been able to finish.

Please Note: You are welcome to use just a section of a specific challenge if you prefer. For example: If you are working on the Ben & Jerry's Challenge, and you have just a letter or two (or more) to complete a certain flavor, you are welcome to use that as your challenge clean up goal.

Next: Post your specific target or goal below, and you are ready to get started.

The Twist: If your target or goal isn't completed, you may carry it over into the following month. Don't worry....if you choose something that proves impossible, you can "scratch" it (remove it from your list) and move on to the next challenge you need to finish.
