  1. I like how you adapted the Read Harder Challenge into your own book challenge! I’ve been coming up with other challenges for myself to continue reading more diversely once I complete Read Harder. Some of mine are the same as yours but I may steal an idea or two 🙂


      1. Reading a book in a foreign language, books I’ve gotten from giveaways but haven’t read yet, a play, a biography, an autobiography, more prize winners, more graphic novels (I read Fun Home and loved it), middle grade fiction, books that’ve been on my shelf forever. Stuff like that 🙂 not sure yet what I’ll read for it though.


  2. Sounds like a great challenge for you! I never get anything in Giveaways, so that’s not a viable option for me. And I’m not into graphic novels much, so I decided to give those a miss.
