2021 Book Theme Challenge

At the start of the year, I wrote a list of the books I had planned to read for the year.

I figured it would take the guesswork out of what I wanted to read.

For 2021 I have decided I want to go back to something I did way back in in 2015, and that is curate a themed reading list.

While I don’t plan on setting a number (I’d like to get at least 40), I want to cross as many themes I can off the list.

The only rule I will stipulate is that it is one book per criteria. There will be books that can cross off two maybe even three options. Too bad so sad, it only counts as one.

There are 36 options there and potentially a lot of books.  Which is why I have even made a spreadsheet of the theme, author, title, and where I will get my book (library, bookshelf etc).

Now to go get lost in a book!
