Booklist Queen 52 books in 52 weeks

This is the only challenge I attempted in 2019.   It was hosted at BooklistQueen when they were known as the Pingel Sisters.   I did not participate formally, but rather just printed and tracked on my own.   I enjoyed it very much and thus sparked my interest for expanding my challenges in 2020.

This year is a similar format 52 topics to choose books to meet the prompts.   Read them in any order between 1/1/20- 12/31/20.    If it is similar to last year the blog will have posts about the selections she picked for the prompts in numerical order.  So,be sure to sign up here
