Ever since I dominated last summer’s Book Bingo, I have been addicted to book changes.
On that vein, this year I decided to do three.
What can I say, I tend to jump in with both feet.
Book Bingo just started (I may haven bitten off a bit more than I can chew), but I have been working on two of the challenges since the beginning of the year. Since June is upon us, I thought I would update you all on my progress.

- A book written by someone when they were over the age of 65
A collection of short stories// St Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves
- A book published by an indie press
A book by someone that identifies as LGBTQ// Fun Home

I am doing pretty good, right? I have been lucky enough that many of the books I have read so far have fallen into one category or another. As the year progresses, and I finish Book Bingo, I will take a concerted effort to finish up my lists.
Are you doing any book challenges this year?
