I have managed to succeed in all my challenges:
1 – One non-fiction book per month (not including poetry or plays). DONE
2 – One poetry book per month. DONE
3 – 150 books in the whole year: I finally got to 168
4 – 25,000 pages: I got to 28,532. For this year I am going t increase my goal to 30,000 pages.
5 – 24 foreign (I consider "foreign" any reading materials whose author are not from Spain, USA or UK) books in the whole year. I also allowed for 3 months (and 3 months only) in which I could read only 1 and then compensate.: I didn't eve need the compensation mechanism. I am going to scrap that for my 2021's challenge.
6 – 40 books written by women. I got to 75
7 – 3 of my books per month. DONE
This was the messy challenge. I include ebooks here. As this year has been as it is, most of my books have been ebooks, which is allowed and within the challenge but not my original intention. So next month I am only counting the paper books.
8 – 1 African book per month. DONE
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY.
