Well, the first quarter of the year is in the books (how is that even possible?!?), so I figured I‘d post on my #ReadingAsia2021 progress! I‘m actually halfway through the challenge, which I never expected at this point! I know some of these countries are going to be tough to check off, so I‘m really happy to have a good start. It‘s been fun so far!

JennyM Great reading! Well done 😊 2y
