I have decided to set my personal reading goal for 2021 at 65 – I think this allows for another weird up-and-down year of reading because, let’s be honest, 2021 is not going to be a normal year either, is it?
With that in mind, I thought I might try giving myself 26 reading prompts for the year to keep me motivated – that works out at one a fortnight and leaves plenty of room for mood reading and whatever else comes up through the year.
So, without further ado, here we go!
