Reading Challenges for 2017

This is the page for my 2017 Book Reading Challenges. I am doing some challenges again this year that I have done before, and I am doing some challenges new for this year. One or two challenges I wanted to repeat are no longer available, so I substituted where I could. Throughout the year, I will update my progress on these reading challenges. The overall idea is to get me to try out some new things as well as just make my reading routine over the year a bit more fun. Links for each challenge go to the challenge announcement post I made for each one where I will add the book titles, review links, and other updates.
