I can’t believe it’s July already! One month until my birthday. Also, it’s time for the Summer Book Challenge. This time they’ve decided to shorten the challenge and we have only 5 tasks for each point set. Also they’re going to simply take all of the finishers and draw five names from them to figure out who is deciding the Fall Book Challenge’s 25 point tasks.
