Michael Jackson Reading Challenge 2018




Michael Jackson would have turned 60 in 2018. I love his music. His song are full of emotion. They make you fall in love. They make you want to dance. They make you think. Michael (low key) added political and race relation issues in his song. He embodied what the word superstar really means. So I present to you the Michael Jackson Reading Challenge. Books have to be at least 100 pgs. If you are interest and seeing how I am doing with the challenge my progress will be updated below.

Start Jan 1st 2018 to Dec 31st 2018
