I had a lot of fun with the previous Beat The Backlist challenges, so of course I had to join again. This challenge is hosted by Novelknight and in 2022 will be all about reading for the fourth 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 2022 to count, and you can set your own goals as you see fit.

I’ve decided to set my goal at a total of 80 books published before 2022, with at least 30 of them published 2019 or before.

On to the official update post part… Where I will share the books I’ve read that fit the challenge. Books are either orange for books published in 2021 or 2020 or green for books published before that.
