Idk about ya'll but my bookshelves (physical and digital) are a mess. All those unread books, it's time to clear some of them and I'm hoping that this challenge helps me do that. My goal is to read at least 50 unread books on my shelves that match these prompts. It's all in good fun so no need to do all the prompts if you don't want to, but feel free to join me either way!
