2020 Reading Challenge

Goodreads Reading Challenge

I didn’t do a whole lot of reading last year and I didn’t participate in the Goodreads Reading Challenge. However, this year my goal is to read 30 books and I think I can manage that. Especially with all the amazing books that are coming out this year!
