Southern Belle Reads: 2015 Reading Challenges

I have decided to make a few changes to my personal reading challenge.  Instead of 12 Civil War Novels and 12 Self Help Novels, I have decided to do 6 Civil War Novels and 6 Self Help Novels.  I think that is a much better break down.  Plus I don’t think it will burn me out, I think the 12 and 12 was just a little too much.  I will keep you posted!

Summer Reading Challenge

I have been in a bit of a reading funk so I have decided to give myself a Summer Reading Challenge. To Read 20 books total in the months of June, July, August, and September.  The books?  Whatever; self-help, fiction, romance, non-fiction.  I’m open to anything.  I love to read and I really want to get myself back into reading.  I will keep you posted at the end of each month.
