Project Fill in the Gaps


100books2

I’ve seen quite a few people posting this lately and have been intrigued. Therefore, I’m up for the five year challenge. The group blog can be found HERE.

In essence, we each create our own list of 100 books we want to read over the course of 5 years. Mine is a combination of Banned Books, Award Winners, 1001 Books, and my own TBR list. Lots of fun ahead.
