  1. I am also doing the Diversity challenge this coming year. Your other challenge choices look good as well. I love the feeling of challenges yet to be done.

  2. Good luck, Vicki! My challenge in 2021 is read more from my own shelves.

  3. Good luck with your goals. I’m doing the same as Mary, read my own books and pass them on. I’ve had them for a few years now and actually read quite a few of them this year. Wishing you a happy, healthy and peaceful new year.s

  4. It’s great to have you as part of the What’s in a Name challenge!

  5. Looks like there will be many good books in your future! 🙂

  6. You are going to have a great time with your reading challenges. I love joining them even if I don’t do so well sometimes! 🙂
    Have a blast and hope you read lots of great books in the New Year.

    • I usually don’t do well either, but I love the idea and think each year will be the year that I finish all of them 🙂

      Thanks, I hope you read a lot of great books too!

  7. Delighted you are joining the Nonfiction Reader Challenge for 2021!

  8. Thank you for joining the What An Animal Reading Challenge, Vicki! Good luck with all your challenges. Happy New Year!

  9. Thanks for signing up for my Southern Lit Challenge! You’ve signed up for even more challenges than I have! 🙂 I think that even if I fail at them, at least I’ve made an effort to broaden my reading and horizons and that counts as a win for me. Good luck with all of these!

  10. Enjoy all your challenges!

  11. So pleased you are participating in #BB2021FRC
    You are very ambitious to sign up for so many challenges!
    Good luck with them all!

    • Thanks for hosting! I should be ok with the challenges as some have only a few books to read and others can crossover to other challenges. Hopefully I can complete all of them.

  12. Wonderful! Thank you for joining the Children’s Books Challenge. Looks like you’re off to a great start!
