Challenges for 2021 (Update January 31)

I wanted to have a page where I listed all my 2021 Reading Challenges. I hope this will help me to keep them organized and that I won’t forget any of them. My plan is to update this page at the end of each month with my progress. I will also use the same book for more than one challenge, so it will not be impossible to complete as many of my challenges as possible.

Final Christmas Readathon Update – December

I began my Christmas reading in earnest, starting September 1st. My goal for each month is to read or listen to 12 to 15 Christmas books that are on my TBR. In September, I read/listened to  17 of these books. In October, I read/listened to another 19 and in November I only added 13 more to my total. I finished off my readathon with a bang. I read or listened to 17 Christmas books in December. This brings my grand total of 66 Christmas books from September 1st to December 31st. I more than reached my goal of 50. I still have a lot left on my TBR, but this put a nice dent in it. I am done with Christmas stories until Christmas in July. Continue reading “Final Christmas Readathon Update – December”

The 52 Book Club: 2021 Challenge

The 52 Book Club: 2021 Challenge

I was invited to join this Goodreads group and challenge for 2021. If you click on the link above, it will take you to the webpage. Anyone can join in. I have done the Popsugar Challenge for the last three years and although I have been getting closer to completing it each year, I was looking for a change. This Challenge looks like it could be the one. Of course, if I read one a week, technically I should have no problem completing this challenge. What I need to do is try and complete the hardest prompts in the first couple of months so I will finish, but I shall see. Here goes, I am going to select some of the books I want to read, some will fulfill challenges as I read them (i.e. Book I rate 5 stars) and some I will keep searching for. 28/52
