2017 Reading Challenge

I'm not doing the "Mt. TBR" challenge this year. I didn't keep up with reporting it too well last year, so this year I'm just doing the "GoodReads Reading Challenge". I signed up for 200 books as my goal. My real goal is NOT TO BUY so many books this year! Went overboard last year and have way too many I still need to read this year.
