2019 Popsugar

2019 Popsugar Reading Challenge
It is the last day of 2019 and I have just "lost" this
on both Goodreads AND this blog! I kid you not. 
Both of them. Gone... Although I realized about 4-6 weeks ago I would not be able to complete this challenge by 
year's end, I vowedto do so in early 2020. 
Now I'm not so motivated...
Plan B: I will read the books I had planned for the remaining
prompts here in 2020 and count them for next year's reading challenges. I will have read the books I had planned to read, 
even if they won't count toward this specific challenge.
Prompts completed: 40/50
Books read: 98 total as of December 31, 2019

Those completed in 2020:
Prompts completed: 1 = 41/50
Books read: 5 total as of January 19
Only 9 more to go! ;)
