2021 Reading Challenge

Updated: Nov 22, 2021

I was feeling like my yearly reading challenge was getting a little stale (see my 2020 Reading Challenge), because I wasn't really excited to start again this year. So, I've done some revamping to keep it fresh, and also to keep it a challenge. My reading tastes have changed a lot over the past few years of doing these challenges. This means that some of the items that were a challenge before are no longer hard for me to find/convince myself to read. I've kept a few of the same items on the list, but most are new (or similar but more specific).
