The Sunday Post – No. 6

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

I entered my first challenge this year, 2013 Read-A-Latte Challenge where I have to read 100 books by end of year. At the rate I’m starting if I stay on course and read at least 3 books a week, by end of year it equals 156.
