2020 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge

I successfully completed the 2016, 2017, 2018, & 2019 POPSUGAR Reading Challenges. I want to bring my winning streak to 5! This year I plan to do the basic challenge, but I might also do the advanced. I’ll probably decide if I want to extend to the advanced by the summer.
