I think this challenge last year helped me pick up some older books, so I wanted to sign up again. I’m horrible at updating on all of these, but I like the challenge. You can find all the info HERE.
The Beat the Backlist reading challenge is designed to help you tackle all the books you keep meaning to read and still haven’t. The guidelines are simple:
- The book must be published in the previous year or earlier (for the 2021 challenge, anything published in 2020 or earlier counts).
- You have to start and finish the book in 2021.
- And that’s it!
Any format, any genre. Re-reads count, and you don’t have to own the book. It’s open for the entire year so whenever you feel like jumping in, you can!
There are also other challenges including Bingo lists.
My goal is 15 books. I just don’t know which books I’ll be reading yet. I did read a couple in January.
