It's back, 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. All book formats count. 

Other Rules:

  • Books must be read on or after January 1, 2022 to count.
  • Challenge runs from January 1 to December 31, 2022.
  • Books may cross over to other challenges in which you are participating. 
  • Books must be labeled as memoirs to count. 
  • You do not need a blog to sign up.  You may keep tract of your progress on Goodreads, Amazon or other similar sites with a shelf dedicated to this challenge.  Or sign up on Youtube, Facebook, or Twitter. Sign up below in the comments.
