Here we go again, folks :D .

Happy new year, and welcome to the CBB Book a Week Challenge for 2021! At least we've still got books!!

The rules are the same as always, and the challenge is to read at least one book for every week during the year. I'm not sure how many people actually "do" the challenge and how many of us just like to have a place for recording which books we've read during the year, but whatever :lol: .

If you're new to the challenge, the rules are as follows:

1. Re-reads not included
2. At total of 52 books to be read by the end of the year. This equates to roughly one a week, although obviously some books take longer to read than others
3. All books are allowed, as are transcripts of something you would otherwise have read in book form. Textbooks etc count, as long as you've read the whole thing!
4. This is a personal challenge and not competitive

Everyone taking part in the challenge should create their own personal challenge post on this thread. Use that post for the rest for the year when you finish each book. Please edit your post as follows:

1/52 Book One-Author
2/52 Book Two-Author
and so on right up to 52 (and beyond if the mood takes you!)

Or just number them 1,2,3,4 etc if you prefer.

If you would like to contribute more information, please feel free to post reviews in another thread within the Recommendations forum. This thread should only be used to update your own post with your book count, though, please .

If you just fancy using this thread to record the books you've read through the year, rather than aiming for 52, and or to use different colours for different genres, or indeed anything else, then please feel free to do so.

Happy reading, all.
