I heard about a summer reading challenge via @Teaandcakeforthesoul. I have more than 20 books in my unread eBooks and bookshelf. So this was the motivation for me to look through the books and pick the top 20 that I want to read and join the challenge.

One of my goals this year was to make time to read and now that I finally have my new glasses I can do that!

Here is my list of books I have marked ‘want to read‘ on Goodreads. I currently am using Kindle Unlimited and have borrowed a few books from there to read first.  You can get a free months trial of Kindle Unlimited by clicking here.

You've Gotta Read This

GoodReads Annual Reading Challenge

I am participating in the Goodreads 2019 annual reading challenge. Here is my Year in Books 2018 on Goodreads. 2017  Year in Books Reading Challenge.  Also 2016, 2014  &  2013. I apparently didn’t participate in the challenge in 2015. That must be because that was my senior year of college at age 51 and I was busy reading textbooks.


Believe you can and you will

In addition to the books listed I will be reading a lot of eBooks from The Ultimate Bundles Herbs And Essential Oils Super Bundle. What's inside Herbs & Essential Oils Super Bundle plus cheatsheets
