2019 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge

I successfully completed the 2016, 2017, & 2018 POPSUGAR Reading Challenges. Even though I’m a planner, I still had a hard time finishing this last year. This year, I’ll do better!

For those of you who haven’t heard of this challenge before: there are prompts that you must fill. It’s pretty simple, although some categories can be tricky! Here’s a link to the official webpage for the 2019 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge.
