Dare to Dream

This is a picture I spotted and thought it was amazing. Hope you enjoy it too! 

Book Photo Scavenger Hunt

So, over the summer I was doing a program with my local library. It was a really fun opportunity which involved me participating in many challenges. Over the next few days or so, I'll be posting some of the relevant challenges I completed. My first one is my photo scavenger hunt, in which I had to include where I like to read, where my books are kept, what inspires me to read, and a scene from a book. I hope you enjoy it!

Books to Read

So, let me tell you now that I have a LOT of books to read. I have a list of current books, and a list of books to read when I'm older, but here I'll be posting my current books I'm interested in reading. Essentially, these are books that I, if the books were in at the library, would pick up right here and now.  So check it out!
