I Love Picture Books Challenge 2015

***Challenge complete. See my wrap-up post HERE.***

Dates: January 1 - December 31, 2015
Hosted by: Gina @ Book Dragon's Lair

Guidelines (quoted from the announcement page):
  • Read picture books.
  • Pick a number and go for it. Twelve too easy? Go for 20. Piece of cake? Go for 40.
  • Books you own and library check outs count. So do e-books and re-reads.
  • Please post about the challenge and sign up with a direct link.
  • A blog is not necessary, just link to where you talk about the challenge
  • Reviews are not necessary but would be nice (so we know which ones to read ourselves!) A link for reviews will be posted in January.
✹ I'm going to set twelve books as my original goal, and hope to do a little better than that.
