Read All The Books!

I have decided to put myself through another challenge of sorts – though this one isn’t really time-limited, so I like it more than my other challenges. I got this idea in a rather convoluted way: Quinn mentioned she was doing a challenge hosted by The Herd Presents – and I modified it to suit […]
