A Million More Pages - Campfire Cookout
Campfire Cookout hosted by A Million More Pages on Goodreads.
Even though Hogwarts have ended I am still taking part in challenges in the group A Million More Pages on Goodreads. I hope to read 9 books for this challenge.
August 1 to September 30, 2015
For this challenge, you will be building a campfire and then you will put together the ingredients to make a few popular campfire snacks. Your campfire cookout will be considered complete when you finish 7-to-9 tasks, which will earn a badge. *Please let me know before you claim your badge. (I'm not verifying, I just want to see finished challenges because they make me happy).
