Reading Goals 2020

I managed to hit all my 2019 goals last year so I'm staying with the same process in 2020. I have lists of books that I plan to read from. This keeps me focused on books I want to read and at the same time permits me to read with serendipity and flexibility.
There are four lists that I plan to read from: general fiction, nonfiction, indigenous authors, and Canadian authors. I expect there to be crossover between the lists.


I'm hoping to read at least 24 books from the following fiction list.
