2021 Reading Challenge: 52 Weeks, 52 Books

Now that I’m not working over 40 hours a week, I can look through my fellow bloggers’ posts and see what sort of reading challenges they are undertaking. Why not join another reading challenge? This one is to read one book a week, and fill the categories as you go. Don’t like one of the categories in the 2021 Reading Challenge? Change it or skip it. Double count a book for multiple prompts. Interpret the prompts any way you like. Do what you want to make this reading challenge your own. That’s the kind of challenge I can get behind.

Thanks to The Booklist Queen for this reading challenge.
