Book Challenge by Erin 20.0

This is hosted at a private Facebook group. This runs from January 1 to April 30, 2024.

NEW, for this VERY SPECIAL 20th CHALLENGE - There will be 20 book categories! But you still are only challenged to read 10 books. How will this work? There will be our always-present freebie category plus 19 categories, one from our previous 19 challenges. You will choose 10 books that suit 10 of the categories and that will be your preliminary list. So, if there’s a category that you’re not interested in reading, for BCBE20, you can just select to skip it because there are 19 other categories to choose.
