reading list 2022

My reading goal in 2022 is to continue the habit I developed in 2020 and to read every day. To make things interesting, one of my 22 for 2022 things is to work through the Dymocks 2022 Reading Challenge, which has 20 reading suggestions and a further six extra challenging suggestions, so some of the books I’ll be reading will be connected to that.
