This is an overview of the reading challenges that I set out in 2024. At the end of 2023 I decided that I didn’t want to do another year of geographical challenges, instead I selected two nature themed challenges that fit my vision of explorer core. I made the goal for female authors slightly more challengin than last year, because I enjoyed the challenge so much.

Here you can find an archive of previous challenges, and this page shows an overview of all the books I read in 2024 (my aim is to read 40).
