Reading Challenges | January Update

It's February, so it's time to check-in on my progress with my 2019 reading challenges.

First, I should mention that since my beginning-of-the-year reading challenge post, I decided to add a few more challenges because why not? They're too much fun for me to resist.


(I want to complete all 52 prompts.)

(I want to complete the epic bingo card.)

(I want to attempt to get a bingo each month.)

(I want to complete all twelve prompts.)

(I want to complete the Insatiable Reader level.)

#LittenLoveBingo
(I want to complete all 25 prompts.)

#ReadingUSA
(I want to read a book for each of the 50 states.)
