Reading Challenges 2020

After taking a break from reading challenges for 2 years (reading continued, without challenges), I figured out I miss challenges. For two reasons – one, I like the thrill of signing up and ticking them off at the end of the year and two, these challenges helped me discover new books and forced me out of my comfort zone. So, I decided to sign up for a few challenges this year.

The Backlist Reader Challenge 

Let me come clean – I have a TBR list which can last me a lifetime and more. I tend to reach for the newer additions and the older books on the list tend to be ignored. Hoping this challenge will help me fix that. I hope to read atleast 6 books from my TBR list, which are published before 2018.

Nonfiction Reader Challenge 

My list of books over the years is leaning towards nonfiction, so it only makes sense to take this challenge to tilt the balance even more. I hope to have atleast 50% of my 2020 list to be nonfiction, so about 12 books.

Poetry Reading Challenge

I am terrible at appreciating poetry and I blame the lack of exposure for that. Signing up to read one poem a day for a week in a month is my last attempt to infuse some poetry into my life. Let us hope this works.
