Wait, your wife did what?!
It was a pity he wasn't a woman, so then he might have had a chance of seducing his friend and marrying into his pocket, as it happened in the scandalous, poorly written novels that Christobal sometimes painted covers for. Christobal Vainart in Jackie & Wilson

Charming Summer Reading Challenges

Charming Reads Challenges 2018

Longer days mean more daylight for reading outside. Why complete a Charming Reads Challenge in the process? You will have three months to complete one (or more) of three challenges this summer. How do they work?

For each challenge, you’ll be given five books to complete. Read three of them and post 2+ times in the appropriate discussion thread to complete that challenge and earn this beautiful stamp:

Participating in the challenge can also help earn you our book club stamps, which is always a bonus!

Track your progress in this thread using the form below:

Code:
<center>[b]CHALLENGE NAME[/b]</center>
[b]Book 1:[/b] [i]Started[/i]: /[i]Finished[/i]:
[b]Book 2:[/b] [i]Started[/i]: /[i]Finished[/i]:
[b]Book 3:[/b] [i]Started[/i]: /[i]Finished[/i]:
[b]Book 4:[/b] [i]Started[/i]: /[i]Finished[/i]:
[b]Book 5:[/b] [i]Started[/i]: /[i]Finished[/i]:

Finally, everyone who completes a challenge will get one raffle entry per. You’ll also get an extra one for completing all five books in one challenge like the lean, mean, reading machine you are!

What are the challenges, you ask?

I was able to get all of these free off of iBooks so am going to start off with these! If I can convince J to bankroll getting me some books, I'll order the other ten off Amazon if I can't find them on iBooks. #notmymoney
