Unofficial Trim Challenge

The Unofficial Trim Challenge is hosted by my PBT group. Each of us created a list of 24 books that are on our TBR. Each month, a participating member will randomly pick a remaining number between 1 through 24. Then, we read the book associated with that number on our list. Because there are 24 books, this challenge will last for two years.
