2017 Reading & Blogging Challenges

It has been a while since I have been blogging and really reading.  First I went back to school and started working more and the blog just kind of went away for a few months.  This year I have decided to bring it back, new and fresh with some Reading & Blogging Challenges to get me started and to kick it off.
