Challenge Rules (Per Website): “You can read in order or jump around, but keep this order in the plan, as we are using the numbers to find quickly a topic.

If you can’t complete the challenge, it’s not a problem. If one topic is really too much out of your comfort zone or too much difficult to fulfill, you can use the Wild Card and read something else for this week (reader’s choice or past suggestions).”
