#BookADayMay for 2018

30 Days, 30 Books. This is a fun challenge I put to myself last year. Let’s try it again for 2018! My goal is to read a book a day (mostly middle grade, of course) in May. I’ll update this calendar throughout the month. Or watch for daily tweets on @Elymnifoquent …

How about a look behind the Byways header on Book #13, Among the Tents: A Ganix Johns Adventure?
