Reading Challenge 2022 – Discoveries

Reading Challenge 2022 is ready! While leaving 2021 behind, I thought about how this year went regarding reading and my relationship with books. As if one wasn’t enough, I created a second book club with excellent women, and we talked about books and literature whenever we wanted. I bought books about books, read many of them, and created various reading lists. You see, 2021 was filled with literature, and I want 2022 to be the same: full of books and literature.


Reading Challenge 2022 - Discoveries

I prepared an eclectic reading list this year, just like last year. I wanted Reading Challenge 2022 to be a reading list where we focus on new things and discoveries. I look forward to reading authors I haven’t read before and exploring topics that I’m unfamiliar with, and I want you to join me. When choosing books, think about if they’ll teach something to you; Let’s enjoy learning and discovering this year!
