The year is nearing to an end, and with that it’s time to think about new 2020 reading goals. Since I always seem to be having a huge pile of pending backlist titles no matter how much I read, I’m always looking for a way to make myself free more time to finally read them. I loved participating in the last three Beat The Backlist yearly challenges, so of course I had to sign up straight away for the 2020 edition.

This challenge is hosted by Novelknight and in 2020 will be all about reading for the second year in a row… No extra complications or extra points for reviews, just getting those backlist titles read and earning brownie points for that. This challenge is all about reading all those poor neglected books on your shelves instead of just new releases. We all love our new releases, but those older books deserve our attention too right? 😉 Books have to be published before 2020 to count, and you can set your own goals as you see fit.

No Harry Potter themed teams this time around, as instead you can pick the bookish team you can most relate to (The Borrowers, The Rereaders, The TBR Stackers and The Multi-Taskers) or simply join as a General Reader. I couldn’t resist joining the Team mini challenge again as a…


I’m not making a TBR yet since there are still two weeks left before 2020 begins and I’m not sure what I will end up reading before then. But I have established myself a goal…

I’ve decided to set my goal at a total of 80 books published before 2020 next year, with at least 30 of them published 2017 or before.

I’m excited to be joining this year-long challenge again. Anyone else signing up?
