This is my own challenge. I noticed that I’ve read a lot of romance, because I like romance, but that makes me a narrow reader. (“Focused” has a nicer ring to it, but let’s call it what it is: “narrow”.) So, I’ve decided to widen my horizons by reading other types of books. Let’s see how I fare at the end of the year. 🙂 Even 1 per category would be good.
