Check out all the information and details (as well as giveaway goodies) for the Book Challenge here. The gist of the challenge (if you are new to it) is that I am reading a history book every week from the third week in October to the last week of December/beginning of January. Along with reading a book every week until the New Year, I am also hosting a giveaway of one of my favorite books (and other goodies) every week, but all the giveaways will be posted on ONE blog post (but won't be LIVE until the respective week). So stay tuned! 

>> You can click on each Week above to find out information about that week's book and giveaway. Links will be available once I've begun the respective week.
