Yeah so I’m feeling a little bad (even though I shouldn’t) that I haven’t read one of my challenge books, and this month it’s going down the same way. Only I can’t write it off as something else like the last two that were meant to be done.
So, I thought, this is a good way to put up the books that are on the list with an apologies and hopefully I’ll get myself around to actually reading one next month
By the way, this one was always hard for me to pick up because I’m a little scared about what it really is. and because of that, well, it’s hard to pick up.
