Book Dare, Book Challenge, Booklist

No book review today, but here is an update on the 300 Picture Book Challenge.
Also a look at BookDare from author, Adam Lehrhaupt. I had fun rearranging my "to read" list to meet the criteria for July. 
Lastly you'll find a few books I'm currently reading to keep on track with my annual reading list. I hope you find some good suggestions among them.
