The 20 in 20 Challenge! #Read20in2020

Going to try this new one. Click here.

Below are twenty categories (or prompts, if you want to call them that). The challenge is to read 10 fiction and 10 non fiction books. Thus reading 20 books in 2020!
  • You can choose to read a fiction and a non fiction for the same category if you want, but not more than one fiction and one non-fiction for any category.
  • You can read one book each prompt and do all the twenty categories too. Up to you! I only ask that the books be over 100 pages.
  • You can read 2 each month and finish at the end of the year, or read 1 each week and finish by May. That’s totally your call. (Even 1 per day is okay, but that’ll be some feat!)
  • You can track your progress in any way you feel comfortable. I’m not likely to be behind you saying “You’ve not read! You’ve not read!” (It might happen though! No promises)
  • If you review a book you’ve read for this challenge on your blog, Goodreads or Instagram, feel free to come to this page and comment. I’ll come read it for sure. And maybe, just maybe, others might too.
