Book Challenge... Revised

"Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them" - Lemony Snicket

So... I was struggling with doing a traditional book challenge and then my friend Lori posted a link about a different challenge on Danielle Masterson's page, originally provided by POP SUGAR. And I was struck with inspiration.  I could do this one.  And I was excited to try. 

Reading isn't the challenge for me. I constantly read... the good, the bad and the ugly (50 Shades of Grey anyone?) so having a more specific challenge to work toward is better for me. 

 

Since I was counting Erin Gate's Elements of Style as my first book, it works with this challenge as well and that crosses off the female author on the list.
