Here is a list of all the themes that will be happening over the next year. I will be compiling my (potential) TBR and posting it on this Goodreads shelf. Feel free to choose the same books as me or to choose your own.

  4. Hi! My blind son and I are going to meet this challenge together! I am an avid reader but I honestly do not know what "SFF" stands for in week 3. Could you explain the abbreviation? I am setting us up for the first month because I am coordinating tastes with what is available on audible. Thanks! - tara

    1. Hi Tara,

      SFF stands for Science Fiction and Fantasy! Sorry I didn't make this more clear. I hope your son and you enjoy the challenge and the books you read :)
