Its Back! The 20 Books of Summer Challenge is back again for 2020. Visit the host of this challenge, Cathy at 746 Books for all the rules (not many) and how to hook up. This year it starts on June 1st and concludes on September 1st.

I have participated in this challenge for 3 years. I completed all 20 the first two years, but not last year. The pressure is on to complete it this year. I am going to select books that I have to read for blog tours, those I have selected for challenges, and some fun summer books. I hope not to change them once selected, but the flexibility is there if I need to make some changes.
