Read & Record

Log each day that you read for at least* 20 minutes in your Beanstack account. You can read any book, magazine, or audiobook that interests you! 

*Even if you read 3 hours on one day, you can only get credit for reading on that specific day. For example, if you read for 3 hours one day, it does not count as reading 20 minutes a day for 6 days. The goal is to read at least a little bit every day.
