I’ve been doing the PopSugar reading challenge for several years now, and it’s one of my favorite challenges. This year, the challenge has 40 standard prompts and 10 advanced prompts. My goal is to complete all 50 prompts. Below is the list of prompts. I will update this list as I work on the challenge.
