I Dare You Reading Challenge

This one is actually a challenge that comes from All Challenges, All The Time...a Goodreads group I belong to.

There is no time limit on this challenge, so like the Read 1,000,000 Pages, it will remain open ended for me. There are 105 items currently in the list, but the list may grow as time continues.

As items are completed, they will be indicated by turning the item red as well as adding a completion date (month/year) and the name and author of the book that qualifies. Each book may be used only once.

The start date for me on this challenge is January 1, 2015. 

42 / 105 Completed
