2020 Reading Challenges


2020 reading challenges I'm following

As in the past, mostly the challenges listed here help me direct my reading. As such, some will not provide a challenge, simply indicate how well I am doing. Some of the challenges are external to this blog while others are hosted here or on a blog that I manage. In practical terms I do allow some challenges to overlap, that is, most books will appear in more than one challenge. Most of the challenges are simply continuations of ones I took on last year as I have found that these work for me.

This page is a work in progress

British Books Challenge 2020

- mine will be crime fiction
