Memoir Reading Challenge 2020


I


It's back for another  year, once again using a checklist. Some categories have been changed, however. To participate, you must read a minimum of five memoirs from any of the categories listed. One book can only count for one category. Re-reads are acceptable. You do not need a blog to participate. All book formats count. 

Other Rules:

  • Books must be read on or after January 1, 2020 to count.
  • Challenge runs from January 1 to December 31, 2020.
  • Books may cross over to other challenges in which you are participating. 
  • Books must be labeled as memoirs to count.
