Read All the Books: Around the Shelf in Eight(y) Years – 2021


Run by the SciFi and Fantasy Book Club on GoodReads.

“Welcome, adventurers! This year will be our wildest yet, with storms, foreign lands, and strange customs! And I’m not just talking about a visit to Roshar! Who will take the challenge and sail through our bookshelf this year?

Pledge as many as you like (12 is recommended, and you need 25 a year if you want to make a “dent” in the shelf!) and tell us about your travels!

For an additional challenge, see how many books off the shelf you can read in the first 80 days of 2021! (That’s March 22.) It’ll be here before we know it, so, fill up on hot air (or borrow some from the mods 😉 ) and take flight!

Sign up here! Keep track in this thread and/or your Personal challenge thread.

To see how many group books you have and haven’t read, go here.”

I will be keeping track on the challenge’s Goodreads shelf as well as here. I’m aiming for 12! But will continue with further books if I do read them. 25 is the suggested book club count.
