Reading Challenge for 2020

Reading Challenge for 2020

Thank you for your feedback on both last year’s and previous year’s Book Challenges. I’m glad you are enjoying doing it with me! Maybe we’ve got to work on responding to the whole blog in the comments below posts instead of me personally, but regardless, I’m glad we are engaged in this together.

As per your requests, I am continuing to hone our 52 book challenge categories. You wanted to ditch the book club category; I guess I did not convince all of you to join or create one, so we don’t want those folks to feel left out here. I think those of us in book groups can sift our reading into the following categories, as before.

We also are only doing books this time, either audio or in print. Last year, we tried to credit newspaper reading and podcast listening, but those habits are now established; we read over 52 books in one year anyway, so we are back to categories for all of them. You seem to prefer finding more specific categories, so that is returning, following along some of the themes on this blog.

So below you can find our new challenge; we hope you join in the fun. I’ve added a print button at the bottom, if that is helpful for keeping track, or feel free to copy and paste the categories into whatever app works best for you. Nothing like a New Year and a fresh challenge!

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
