I'm happy to see someone's hosting this challenge again! This will be my third time participating. The first time made me realise that almost everything I read is by white people. The second time made me a little more aware of that and I did a bit better, but still way off balance.

2016 Women Challenge
I'm always happy to sign up for the one challenge I never fail! :) A little over half of everything I read is written by women. But even though the challenge is easy for me, I like that it keeps me aware of the genders of the authors I read. I will once aga...

2016 Read the Books You Buy Challenge
In a way, it's kind of strange to be signing up for both this challenge and the Mount TBR Reading Challenge. But Mount TBR has me chipping away at the mountain, while this challenge should help me keep the mountain from growing, so in a way they complement ...

2016 LGBTQIA Challenge
This reading challenge is for books that feature a main character who is LGBTQIA. This goes well with my ongoing efforts to diversify my reading. I'll be starting off easy with level Orange - 6-12 books. I'll list the books I read for this challenge below.

2016 NetGalley Reading Challenge

Now this is a challenge I really need to do! My NetGalley score is... not good. I've pretty much left it alone in the last year or so, but for a while I was requesting way too many books, not even realising that I'd never be able to read them all in time. Much the way I buy books, actually.
