Since we can "UP" this Challenge at any time through the year, I'm going to play it safe and Challenge myself to an easy one of 25 Self-Published books - which I KNOW I WILL exceed! Like I said, I can change it at any time, so . . .  this DECLARES i AM GOING TO DO #3: A PAGE! (Even though undoubtedly I'll end up doing a Chapter! I'll just come back and change it!)
You can go over to my Challenges 2013 page at the TAB up above and see the books listed under this Reading Challenge! The book will have the LINK attached to it. I usually read about 50/50 - 50% Published and 50% Self-Published. Who knows? It might even be higher! We'll see how the year goes!
