Back to the Classics 2016 Wrap Up

It’s the end of the year, so finished or not, here’s what I’ve completed for the Back to the Classics Challenge! I’m actually content with my results. I completed 9 challenge books plus a pretty decent stack of non-challenge books despite moving cross country and having to restart most parts of our lives. Next year nothing major is planned so MAYBE I’ll get through all 12! See the links for all the challenge wrap up posts HERE – what a great source of book suggestions for next year!
