POPSUGAR Reading Challenge 2020 Update: Week Twenty-Seven

Good morning, everyone! Happy July 4th to those of you celebrating Independence Day in the United States! I hope that you are having a fun, safe holiday weekend.

The Game

Good afternoon, everyone! Did you know that today is World UFO Day?

My goal for the week was to complete some of…
