2021 READING CHALLENGE

HOW THIS WORKS:

There are 5 tiers divided into 60 categories. You can complete the challenge going tier by tier, pick the tiers you want to complete or pick the categories you want to complete. Ore if you are someone like me you can just go about it in what ever fashion you feel like when you wake up each morning.

Check out the Tiers and Categories below – If you want to join in you can get the printable version here for ease of reference.

This challenge is hosted by Linz the Bookworm & The Logophile. This is a very casual challenge – nowhere to really link up to but the hosts are quite happy to chat with you on Goodreads or Twitter about your choices etc. You could always just leave a comment on their posts or even just lemme know that your joining up if you want.

I will update the spreadsheet as I complete categories with links to the reviews.
