Good day, dear readers!

2023 has started, and it is time for a new reading challenge! Last year, I was able to get through 281 books, with almost 54,000 pages read. But, this year, I am hoping to get further with the reading, and I would love to invite you to join me this year with a fun challenge! My initial goal is 200 books, but I would love to hit 300 if I can. I am working on clearing my reading backlog and catching up on books I have been trying to read for a while.

Below, I have added fifty different categories, allowing for a wide range of reading, and choosing some fabulous books for the year. Let’s get reading!
