Default 2020 Reading Challenge   #1  
hi again!!!

i set myself a reading challenge every year, which is to read more books than the previous year. 2017 was the first year i did this on Trisphee, (i had a great time! thanks Moonshadow!) and in 2018 and 2019 i had fun hosting... so here we are again!

so, (snagging from previous threads), set a challenge for yourself: read 50 books, read only the books you have at home that you haven't read yet, read a specific genre, read only non-fiction books... whatever you choose.

Your first post should contain your challenge, and use a spoiler to indicate how you are progressing in meeting that challenge. i use a spoiler for my booklist. =)

Please feel free to chat about books, your day, anything!

Totes doing this again!


Kaderin's Reading List

Honestly, my goal is just to finish all the books that are still in progress from last year...
Maybe to read a couple others as well, we'll see.

I would like to read more books that are either by lgbt+ authors or have lgbt+ characters. Les say my goal is 20 for now.
Answer my riddle to earn a prize!

You'll always feel it, but can never see it. It's strong but shatters easily. You can give it away but never hold it. What is it?

Pm me the answer, no cheating please!

It is nice to sit down and escape from reality in a book...
I don't read nearly as often as I should, but I'm hoping to change that soon. I'm also hoping to get a job at the public library, which I will be submitting my application for tomorrow.

From the job description, it sounds like basic front/reception desk stuff, but would be a great job I think. I'm a little hesitant about applying because I don't have any of the education and experience described in the job listing, but my one friend who works there says that doesn't matter because they hire the person not the education and are just looking for someone who is a good fit.

Apply like you deserve it and convince them you'll be great without the requirements.
