Welcome to the Travel the World in Books Reading Challenge where you choose your own reading and travel adventure! I’m teaming up with I’m Lost in Books and Savvy Working Gal for bringing you this reading challenge where you set your own goals and rules for what you would like to accomplish during your reading challenge. Finally, a no-stress, no-worries, kind of challenge that helps you expand your reading and cultural horizons.
Here are my goals for this challenge:
