A 2021 RAD Reading Challenge

From RAD:

“This is one of my favorite things to create year after year. A RAD Reading Challenge is a fun, motivating, inspiring, and easy way to branch out and read more, get out of reading ruts, and discover books I never would have read otherwise.

“There are nine categories in the 2021 challenge, so I hope that it feels doable and exciting to all kinds of readers! I love encouraging you all to read more, whether your goal is to read a few books or a few hundred, whether you’re stoked about reading or find it to be a struggle. I’ll be doing this reading challenge right alongside you, and it’s my goal to focus on books by diverse authors as much as I can to complete it. I hope you’ll join me!”
