From My Shelf's "I LOVE BOOKS" Reading Challenge

Between this Valentine's Day and Valentine's Day 2017, we challenge YOU to find some new books you'll love. In searching to meet these challenges, you may be surprised at books that you would not normally have chosen... they may come to be some of your favorites. You may be surprised at different authors or genres that will touch your heart, or get it racing.
