100 Books Scratch Off Bucket List #2


I thought it was high time I tried to make some progress on my 100 Books Bucket List. My original post was back in 2019. If you wish to check out the post it is here. I will be honest I haven’t made as much progress as I would like so I think I need to make an effort and try and get some ticked off. Some of the classics that are on the list are also on my Classics Club list so there is a stronger chance I will get those read sooner rather than later.

I am not sure if I will be able to read anymore off this list before the end of this year but I am definitely planning some kind of challenge for next year which will get more of these books ticked off. Perhaps I will try and read one book a month from the list. I will get thinking and see what I come up with but I really would like to get moving with this challenge.

Do you have any long term book challenges that you have perhaps forgotten about like I have?

Happy Reading
