Beat the Backlist 

This is being hosted over at  Novel Knight.   It is based on reading books published before 2019, any format, any genre, you don't even have to own the book and rereads count.  So if this sounds like a challenge up your alley go sign up now

There is an fun spin on the challenge where you can join a team and then enter the book you read to a list to earn points for your team.  Participation in this is not required and no review is required even if you are doing the team mini challenge.  I signed up for TEAM BORROWER

There is also an optional BTB Bingo game  where you can complete prompts (24 or 80 prompts) and play along with the game.  There is a format list for those that just want to complete the prompts and not play bingo as well.
