Vroman’s 2018 Reading Challenge
This isn’t a test.  No one is keeping score and there are no points to post.  The challenge is to push yourself, to take advantage of this challenge as a way to explore topics or formats or genres that you otherwise wouldn’t try.  You may count one book for multiple tasks or read one book per task.

o A travel memoir
o A book told from the point of view of an immigrant
o A book about nature
