Well, folks, it looks like 2021 is going to be a year filled with ambition as far as my reading goals go!
(*mumbles* It’s better than facing the outside world when not actively being an activist. *falls over*)
Not only will I be participating in the first year of the Fanfiction Reading Challenge that I created myself, I’ll also be ambitiously aiming for way too many other “real” book challenges.
For those interested, here’s a link to more info and the spreadsheets that make keeping track of the proposed tasks that much easier. No signups required, no reviews/comments/kudos/favourites… though the latter is always a friendly thing to do when your own circumstances allow!
In other news, though… here are the reading challenges I plan/hope/fervently pray to complete this year. Each Challenge will have a separate web page so that I can provide accurate linking for the signup and the challenge creator(s)’s ease of access.
I will very likely not complete all of these, but I’m going to darn-well try! 😉

But remember the Three Laws of Fandom: Ship and Let Ship (SaLS), Don’t Like Don’t Read (DL;DR), and… Your Kink Is Not My Kink—And That’s Okay! (YKINMKATO…. which all sorts of dorks call ‘kink-tomato’ because we’re ridiculous). So kindly shove off, keep quiet, and/or go away if you feel the urge to say something rude about a) me reading fanfiction, and b) what I ship/read.
