*Almost
A-Z Author Challenge - Non-Fiction/Fiction

7 Classics Challenge
*Read way more than 7, but I didn't read the last one I listed


To finish reading the P.G. Wodehouse books that I can reasonably obtain
*2 left to read

Finish the Daziel and Pascoe series by Reginald Hill
*Lost interest/started to hate this series as it went on*

To reduce my physical to-be-read pile to single figures
*Did reduce it until a couple of months ago when I started buying some 1001 books

Have roughly halved it since Jan 1st
Currently 25 - March 4th
*Currently about 20


To sell/donate my owned books as soon as read
*Only 3 to get rid of at the moment
