2017 Book Challenge

I love to plan -- plan -- plan
I bought a 2017 planner and joined the craze of planning (but I have been doing this for years so not a big change to my schedule) what I didn't expect when I joined the planner world on line was to discover so many challenges for reading.
I found a really cool one that you chose the books you want to read based on the list below (

The 26-book 2017 reading challenge

  1. A book you read in school
  2. A book from your childhood

  5. A non-fiction book
