However when I started the previous one it was much more on a whim. This time I … Continue reading 40 Before 40 | 5 Year Reading Challenge

The End of the 35 Books Before 35 Challenge

Tomorrow, the 12th, I'm turning 35. Two years ago I thought I had enough time and interest in the 35 books I listed for the 35 books before 35. That did not happen.

How I Keep Track of All the Reading Challenges in 2020

I quite enjoy reading challenges. For me they can add another dimension to my reading as some focus on diversity or books that I might have been avoiding. Some are just plain fun.

One of the reading challenges I found rather last minute was Noura's Harry Potter Board Game Reading Challenge. I haven't entirely prioritized it.
