My 2020 Reading Challenges: Progress Update

With less than a month to go until the end of the year, it’s time to take a final look at how I’m progressing with the reading challenges I set myself this year.

Ongoing Challenges

This challenge is hosted by Andrea at Carolina Book Nook and involves reading books with titles that match each of six categories. Thanks to a handy ampersand in a book title I’ve now managed four of the six so far. If I’m to complete it, I need to read a book with a four letter title and a book whose title is an antonym. The book I have lined up for the latter is quite a chunky read.

Create a list of 50 classic books you would like to read within five years and work your way through them (with the help of the occasional Classics Club Spin where a book from your list is selected for you) to earn yourself a place on the Wall of Honour. My deadline is December 2021 and so far I’ve read 42 of the books on my list so I’m heading for the home strait. However, it has to be said that some of the books I’ve read are also part of my Buchan of the Month reading project, of which more below.

Now in its third year, this is a personal challenge involving reading a different book by John Buchan – fiction or non-fiction – every month. You can find my reading list for the year and links to my reviews of the eleven I’ve read so far here.

I set my target at 120 books this year and achieved that when I finished A Conspiracy of Silence by Anna Legat back in October.

  1. You did good, Cathy! I’m sure you’ll manage the other ones before the end of the year. My year has been a disaster. I’ve already lowered my Goodreads goal and I might still struggle to get there. 😳
