2015 Reading Challenge

Another reading challenge that I'm going to participate in! I just found this one on Facebook I think, so I'm not sure if someone is hosting it, or if its just a generic challenge. Either way, I'm looking forward to it! This isn't about reading a particular genre or type of book, but rather covers so many different things! Its just a little different than other challenges I've participated in. Plus, it should help me with my TBR Pile Challenge, too! Some of these will be easy, while others are going to be much harder for me to find/read! Let the fun begin!
