Challenge Check-in

This month marks the end of Spring Bingo (I completed the whole board!) and Asian Lit Bingo (I did not do well at all).

As for yearly challenges, I’m plugging away at most of them, but need to start writing more reviews. And also discussion posts. I’ve written no discussion posts.
