Peace Corps Reading Challenge

Growing up I was a huge reader (especially if there was a horse or Harry Potter involved) but it's a hobby that I've been letting fall to the background as I got more and more addicted to YouTube...Woops.

Luckily, Peace Corps is full of avid readers! I've met a lot of people already that I can talk about books with and it's made me want to dedicate time to this amazing pastime and learning tool more habitually. A common goal for PCV's is to read 100 books during their service, and I'm going to join their number.

Every month I'll post what I've been reading here and each month I'll also write a bit of a blurb about my thoughts on the books I consumed. Feel free to recommend books--it's going to be a long 27 months!

TOTAL BOOKS READ DURING SERVICE: 13/100
