Hi & welcome to the team!
You asked about book challenges we are doing; Iím doing the PopSugar Book Challenge 2020. Itís the 2nd time Iíve attempted a challenge, but my first with them.
They have very active groups on both Facebook and Goodreads. Seems to me that the Facebook one is a great deal more active. Itís also very well maintained, lots of friendly people, and it doesnít solely focus on just the challenge. Itís great for book lovers in general.
I already started it in mid-November(*ducks stones flung by Challenge purists*). Trying to read after head injury and, more recent years, eye health changes, so I read sloooooowwww. Ha! I figure I will need the full amount of time.
Also, just yesterday, I found this Master List of 2020 reading challenges through www.girlxoxo.com. There are several that are actually broken down by genres.
Like you, I still much prefer a physical book, but have come to rely on Kindles and ebooks a great deal. Being able to change background colors and font size is a huge help nowadays. :)
I hope you find one of these challenges interesting, and nice meeting you! emoticon

Hey team!
I am a true blue book lover. I honestly can't get enough. As excited as I was to be able to carry all these books with me when Kindles came out...I still have a special soft spot for the good old fashioned kind you need a physical bookmark for. I am always looking for new reading ideas, so if you have any great ones... feel free to share. Tell me, do you have favorite books? Kids books? Genre? Authors? Reading challenges or lists you may know about? I'd love to know. Currently I am reading Hamilton (the one that inspired the musical). It's a beast of a book and I am not a big biography/history person, but I would love to change that. Anyway, I have a rule so I don't become a book hoarder that I won't buy myself a book that isn't at least 500 pages, otherwise I tend to speed through it. That doesn't mean I don't accept them as gifts. ;) Oh, and the last book that was gifted to me was The Huggopotamus. I love hippos and I am a teacher, so it's all very appropriate. I am also finally going to take advantage of using the library. Haven't done that since I was a child, but it's probably one of my favorite places. Any place filled with books can't be bad. Probably I why I think Belle is the luckiest of all Disney Princesses. He gets her a library! And not just any library, but a library with the rolling ladder attached. Be still my heart.
Anywho, would love to hear about you other book lovers out there.
