Summer Reading Challenge 2018 @ The Messy Middle

Here is the link to this one. I will see how many of these categories I can fill. Number 9 and Number  21 might be hard for me.

It will start June 1  and run through August 17, 2018. To enter, read seven books from 22 categories. Along the way I’ll have encouraging posts. If you would like to write a guest post, contact me.
What’s in it for you? All who comment on August 17-19th with the names of the books they read will be entered to win one of ten $10 Amazon gift cards.
Sound like fun?!

An interesting challenge. I suspect you could nail 21 by reading a blogger's books - and Sandra Cox has a new one out. As do several other writing bloggers.
