The Modern Mrs Darcy’s Reading Challenge 2020

This is not one I have done before but the source is from a blog that I have enjoyed reading for some time.   There are only ten categories but I think I might be able to do it, especially as I will be doubling (or tripling) up with my other two challenges.

Update:  Well this is the only challenge I have completed this year (having giving up blogging for a while from the summer to the end of 2020, I will be doing this one again)

1. Category – to do
2. Category – Plan of what books to read
3. Category – Title of Book Read
