  • Reading Challenge 2021

    One good thing about 2020 was lockdowns provided me more time to read. In the end I surpassed my goal and enjoyed lots of good books. But now it is time to set a new goal for a new year. I have set mine at 100 for several years now, so I've decided since I know I can reach that I need to up it a bit. This year my goal is to read 110 books before the ball drops on New Year's 2022. What will your goal be for 2021?

    I've left the 2020 thread open so everyone can record their final results.

    I started using Goodreads on April 26, 2020. So far I have recorded 348 books. I’ve spent the last 2 yrs rereading previous series. Louise Penny, Diane Mott Davidson. Elizabeth Peters, Lillian Jackson Braun, Lea Wait.

    For December, I took a break and postponed library renewals until January. My latest series is Nancy Atherton Aunt Dimity books.

    2020 was my first year to actually keep track of how many books I read. I knew I read a lot so set my goal at 100, and actually read 101. I really don't think the pandemic increased my reading time significantly, so I'm going to go with 100 once again.

    I really want to get into reading again and I have lots of books downloaded on my Kindle app. I'm going to be ambitious here and set my goal to 75 books. I am close to finishing my first one already.

      I've set my goal at 20 for the past 2 years and exceeded both times, so I'm going for 30 this year.

          1/100 Virgin River by Robyn Carr I've read this whole series and loved it. I figured with the TV series so popular, it would be a good time to reread them.

          Edit: Well, I got so excited about my plans to reread the series, that I jumped the gun. Virgin River will be my second book of the year. I actually just finished On the Rocks by Kim Law.

            I've not seen the TV series nor read the books. But I checked just now on Amazon, and the first books is on sale for $1.99, so I bought it. My library's digital library has the quite a few of the books in the series in both ebooks and audiobooks. So if I like it, I'm sure I'll be reading as much of the series this year as I can.

              I love Robyn Carr's writing. I have all of the VR books, as well as the Grace Valley (which is somewhat related to VR), Thunder Point and Sullivan's Crossing series.

            #2/110 The Return of Absent Souls by C. J. Archer
            This was the 6th and final book in this series, so I kept at it today because I was anxious to know how it all turned out.

                    I began this series a couple of years back. This is the most recent published, so I'm finally caught up. Book 16 in the series is due out later this year. Yay!
