2020 Reading Wins

In 2020, I pledged to read 45 books for my Goodreads annual reading challenge. I’m proud to say that I hit that goal on Dec 28th when I finished Martin the Warrior by Brian Jacques.

This year I’ve pledged to read 50 books in 2021. I’m well on my way toward meeting my goal with 5 books under my belt so far for January. Now is the perfect time to commit to a reading challenge of your own. To help you get started, I’m listing all 45 books I read in 2020 for you here. Pick one that sounds good and get going. Happy reading!
