SpiritBlog.Net is hosting the Foodies Read 2016 Challenge. There are several different levels to sign up for as well as an a la carte selection for you to create your own challenge level.

Short-Order Cook: 1 to 3 books
1) Cinnamon Toasted by Gail Oust
2)
3)

I may add on some a la carte later in the year …
