In my group on goodreads I decided to set up a year long treasure hunt challenge. It has 12 rounds, each with 10 topics to read.

It’s 120 books so if you are doing it all, that means roughly a book every 3days. Some people have chosen to only do a few rounds to make it easier on themselves. I myself have chosen to all of it,  I almost finished my third book so I am on schedule. I will probably try and do a monthly wrap-up post showing which books I have read each month since I am not planning to read them in order.
