My reading challenge 2021 follows the success of the 2020 reading challenge. While I didn’t achieve my target last year because lockdown fatigue, I still got through some books.
You can check out last year’s books at Reading Challenge & Goals for 2020.
A reading challenge helps you diversify your repertoire and improve your writing skills.
Most people join group reading challenges but I prefer my own so as not to put undue pressure on myself to meet an unachievable goal.
I realize this post is about 6 months late but I’ve been reading behind the lines so don’t think I’m starting the reading challenge mid-year.
What’s a Reading Challenge?
A reading challenge is a goal to complete a certain number of books in a set time. The deadline could be weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly.
It depends on you and your goals. You can join a reading challenge group (there are many online) or you can set your own personal reading challenge.
Reading broadens your perspective on life, increases your vocabulary and conversational skills, provides a great escape, and makes you a better writer.
Reading Challenge 2021
For my reading challenge 2021, I’m reading a broad range of books but focusing on what I love most, suspense and thrillers.
I don’t really pick book sizes. I just pick books based on the premise irrespective of the size so I have a variety of books on my list at any given time.
