On January 9, I announced my participation in the Springfield-Greene County Library Winter 2021 Reading Challenge.
Although the rules indicate that you only need to read five books from the fifteen categories, of course I had to try to hit all fifteen.
Which I did.
Actually, I read sixteen books in the fifteen categories so I could do a software testing boundary analysis gag on LinkedIn.
Still, that puts me at 25 books so far this year, which would put me on pace for 150 this year if I kept it up. Which I won’t, of course, as the last eighty percent of David Copperfield, which I paused to complete this challenge, awaits.
Still, having to select something from these categories directed my reading in a fashion that did not leave me wondering what I was going to read next. When I finished it up this weekend, I was at a bit of a loss as to what I was going to read in addition to David Copperfield.
But I got over it.
