pjsandpages | 20 comments Aiming for a minimum of 24 books this year!

Personal goals are trying to read more books by Japanese authors (particularly female authors) and more non-fiction books about data/social media/digital media ethics.

I will also be partaking int he 2020 reading challenge yearly group challenge (read at least 8 books about myths/fairytales/folklore) and the monthly challenges (read at least 3 books from these challenges).
