2020 Wrap-Ups & 2021 Sign-Ups #2

Time for wrap-ups! As I do many reading challenges every year, I thought it would always be better to split the wrap-up posts  into a series.

This week most of the challenges are unfinished. Actually that is pretty much the theme for the challenges left – I just gave up somewhere at the start of December.

Though I have achieved my goals, I haven’t yet got to raise my feedback ratio to what I want, so, yes,  I will continue doing this!

Challenge guidelines… (Sign Up)

  • The challenge runs from January 1, 2021 – December 31, 2021. There is no deadline to sign up.
  • Everyone is welcome to participate – you do not need to have a blog.
  • Any genre, release date, length, etc. counts – it just needs to be a book from NetGalley or Edelweiss.
